The Clock is Ticking: We Need Real Solutions

Contact: press@unitedwedream.org

Washington, D.C.  – Ahead of a packed week that will see over 200 immigrant youth and allies in Washington, D.C. taking action starting December 12, there’s been reports of a framework deal between members of Congress on immigration. 

Greisa Martinez Rosas, Executive Director of United We Dream said: 

“We’ve heard of many leaked memos, conversations and “deals” over the last 40 years. Throughout it all, we’ve sent a very clear message to every politician, Democrat or Republican: we demand action. We don’t need DC gossip, we need real solutions, we need a pathway to citizenship now. 

We are unapologetic about our vision for the future – where every person has the freedom to move and freedom to stay. We will not allow politicians to divide us, to pin us against any of our immigrant communities. We are one community and we will continue to organize to protect people and reach true justice.”


United We Dream is the largest immigrant youth-led organization in the nation; made up of a multi-racial and multi-ethnic network of 1.2 million members, over 100 local groups, and a reach of over 5 million per month. UWD’s vision is to push for just policies that allow everyone to thrive regardless of immigration status. United We Dream is fighting for a multi-racial democracy that works for everyone by building a movement of young people who organize and advocate for the dignity and justice of immigrants and communities of color.

This March marks 21 years of ICE CBP & DHS terrorizing our immigrant communities.

Ever since their creation, ICE and CBP have targeted, detained, abused and deported immigrants while separating loved ones and tearing apart communities. Donate 21 dollars to help us fight back against the 21 years of terror.
