Recommended Community Catalyst Call Script:

Good [morning/afternoon]. My name is [NAME] and I live in[CITY/TOWN], [STATE].

I’m calling today to ask that you support moving a clean DREAM Act forward that protects young immigrants.

Dreamers are a vital part of our communities – they are our friends, neighbors and coworkers. They came to this country as children, and they know no other home.

Fear of deportation for Dreamers and their families will lead to people delaying care or avoiding health care settings entirely.

In addition to the troubling health implications, further delay of the DREAM Act may weaken our health care workforce. Deportation of Dreamers could result in tens of thousands of workers leaving in-demand job categories like home health aide and nursing assistant.

To avoid these problems, Congress must pass the bipartisan Dream Act NOW.

I am counting on you to stand with the hundreds of thousands of young immigrants who call this country home.

Once Dreamers have a pathway to citizenship and their families have the stability they need, we can get back to working toward a healthy future where all children can learn, parents can work, families grow strong, and we all have what we need to reach our full potential.

Thank you.
