If you are aware of a DACA student, it can be compelling to include in your correspondence that you know firsthand the hardship and uncertainty that these individuals face (only use the individual's first name if you use any name at all).
Here are some things you could include in your personalized correspondence:
- I am asking you to support and consider co-sponsoring legislation that would protect DACA and undocumented students brought to this country at a young age through no fault of their own.
- Many of these students are now successfully attending U.S. colleges and universities, and are making our communities stronger.
- This is a bipartisan effort that Republicans and Democrats alike can agree on.
- I hope I can count on your support of this issue.
