On Wednesday, January 17, dozens of Jewish American leaders and activists called on Congress to pass a clean DREAM Act to protect over 800,000 immigrants who came to the United States as children. 86 activists and rabbis were arrested by Capitol Police.

The powerful demonstration, which was organized by several Jewish organizations and co-sponsored by HIAS, follows President Trump’s decision last fall to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program despite record high public support for a pathway to citizenship.
