Grant DACA Recipients Citizenship

Dear Bob Menendez,

I hope this letter finds you well. Over 11 years and 6 months DACA was enacted, I am urgently seeking your support for comprehensive immigration reform, particularly highlighting the need for a pathway to citizenship for DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) recipients.

One critical issue that demands attention is the impact of delayed renewals on businesses, non-profits, and local government jobs. The current system's delays in processing DACA renewals create gaps in employment authorization for these individuals, disrupting the continuity and stability of various sectors.

Businesses often rely on the valuable contributions of DACA recipients, and interruptions caused by delayed renewals can lead to workforce disruptions, affecting productivity and economic growth. Healthcare providers, Non-profit organizations, and other professions which benefit from the diverse skills and perspectives of DACA recipients, may face challenges in maintaining their missions during these gaps.

Local government jobs, where DACA recipients play integral roles in serving communities, can experience disruptions due to delays in renewals. These delays hinder the ability of these individuals to continue contributing to the well-being of their localities, affecting essential public services.

Addressing this issue through comprehensive immigration reform, including a streamlined and efficient process for DACA renewals, is essential. By providing a clear pathway to citizenship, we can mitigate these disruptions and ensure the continued, uninterrupted contributions of DACA recipients to businesses, non-profits, and local government jobs.

I kindly request your steadfast advocacy for legislation that not only addresses the status of DACA recipients but also includes measures to streamline renewal processes, reducing the negative impact on businesses, non-profits, and local government operations. Your leadership on this matter can make a significant difference in fostering stability and prosperity in our communities.

Thank you for your attention to this crucial matter, and I look forward to hearing about your efforts to champion the cause of DACA recipients in the pursuit of comprehensive immigration reform.

Why is this important?

Businesses, healthcare providers, non-profit organizations, and local government jobs may encounter workforce disruptions and challenges in maintaining missions when DACA recipients face delays in renewals. This can impact productivity, economic growth, and the provision of essential public services.

We reached 188 signatures! Thank you for your sincere support! As a result of the amount of signatures gathered, I will be adding the following recipients of this letter to the following congressional representatives, Booker (D-N.J.), Mazie Hirono (D-HI) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) and U.S. Representatives Joaquin Castro (TX-20) and Pramila Jayapal (WA-07). I hope this will help demonstrate the urgency it is for a speaker or sponsor to speak up and come up with an effective plan to grant us a fair pathway citizenship.
My current situation is what has made me realize how important it is to advocate for DACA recipients. In my desperation I created a GoFund me for help and would appreciate any assistance possible. I cannot thank you enough for supporting this cause. We are a wonderful community!
