An emergency rally is taking place on Monday, 20th November 2017 at 5:30pm organised by the Young, Paperless & Powerful campaign group to stand up for young undocumented migrants in America.
Young, Paperless & Powerful is a campaign group made up of undocumented young people aged 14-21 living in Ireland who joined to share their story and highlight the experience of young undocumented migrants in Ireland.
The Young, Paperless & Powerful group are urging the US Congress to pass the Dream Act, a piece of legislation that would save young undocumented immigrants from deportation. The Dream Act would give these young people a path to permanent residency and eventually citizenship.
At their solidarity rally on Monday, the group will be calling on Irish-American Congressman Pete King to support the Dream Act.
The group are inviting Irish people to stand with them in solidarity with undocumented young people in the US. They will be meeting on Monday at 5.30pm at the Famine Memorial on Custom House Quay in Dublin.
