Congressional Budget

Congress is moving onto the budget soon. Please find out – and then share – how Congressional budget decisions would personally affect you at www.handsoff.org.
Our MoCs want stories about how this would personally affect you – in detail – for their speeches. If they use them, they ask permission. Detailed stories are best emailed.

DACA

DACA program is “relief from deportation to individuals who came to the U.S. as children, if they met a number of requirements (like background checks).”
“White House is now standing idly by as a vocal minority of anti-immigrant state officials threatens to unravel the entire program in the courts.”
