Delaware Immigrant Youth Launch National “Right to Dream”
Campaign Calling on Obama to Grant Them Real Relief.
At Rallies across the Country, Thousands of Immigrant Youth and Allies Issue
Declaration of DREAMS, Urge Obama to His Deportation Record
In the three years of the Obama Administration, the immigrant community has
experienced record high deportations. Despite promises for reform and a more moderate
deportation policy, immigrant families find themselves further in the shadows than ever.
Immigrant youth from across the country have had enough. On Monday May 21st,
they will gather at this location: 1010 W Fourth Street Corner of Fourth St. and Jackson St. Wilmington, DE 19805 to launch the “Right to Dream” campaign with rallies across the
country. Undocumented youth and allies from the community will call on President Obama to
use his power to stop tearing immigrant families apart and to provide real and lasting relief for
DREAM Act eligible youth. Simultaneous actions will take place in multiple cities around the
country as part of a national effort organized by the United We Dream Network.
Please join us at Monday’s vigil where members of the Delaware DREAM Team and local undocumented youth will share stories and show solidarity for families who have been ripped apart due to the deportations.
