Washington, DC—On Monday, April 29 at 11:30 am ET, foreign policy and national security experts will gather on a national press call to urge Congress to pass the Dream and Promise Act (H.R. 6) and to enact permanent protections for Dreamers, TPS and DED holders after the Trump administration terminated their legal immigration statuses. The Washington Office on Latin America (WOLA) joined with groups from across the nation in a letter to Congress that will be released after the press call urging the swift passage of H.R. 6 in order to protect communities at home and abroad.
