Lambda Theta Phi is committed to continuously advocating for #DACA recipients, our brothers and all dreamers across the country. Today, August 15th, marks the 5 year anniverary that the first applications were available for DACA recipients. For 5 years, DACA has assisted many of our youth across the country come out of the shadows to continue their pursuit of education and higher education without the fear of deportation. For the past 5 years, 800,000+ young people have been able to call the United States of America their home under this program. We will continue to advocate for the DACA program and any attempt to repeal it is wrong! We encourage all of our brothers and friends/family of Lambda Theta Phi to take a stand - Stand with Dreamers & Defend DACA.
Lambda was founded on the belief that Latino Unity is essential in order to create cultural, social, and political awareness in the Latino community and in the American society. As an organization established at institutions of higher education and members who currently receive Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA), we are committed to become a positive and constructive force for helping our total Latino community.
In partnership with FWD.us, we ask that all brothers, friends and allies to stand with dreamers and stand against the repeal of this opportunity. The DACA program is absolutely correct and critical for Dreamers, their families, and our nation. The consequences of repealing DACA would be massive, and would eliminate the ability of 800,000 young people to continue to live, work and contribute to this country. Repealing DACA would impact almost every major company, industry, and community in America. 10 states threatened to file a lawsuit if the federal government does not immediately repeal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA). Let's stand UNITED for our community.
