Action of the Week
Welcoming Dreamers: A Matter of Compassion
Hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children are in danger of deportation from the only country most of them have ever called home. Illinois is home to nearly 42,400 Dreamers, over 36,000 of whom are in our workforce and contribute over $100 million annually in state and local taxes.

Also, the bipartisan New American Economy coalition is leading a national day of action on December 6 to demonstrate broad support for fixing our broken immigration system, beginning with a solution for Dreamers now.
