Lafayette, Ind. (WLFI) — The Greater Lafayette Immigrant Allies hosted a drop-in phone bank Wednesday at MatchBOX.

They encouraged community members to call their senators and representatives to push them to get behind the Dream Act.

With the government at risk of being shut down, they must pass a continuing resolution for the budget.

Greater Lafayette Immigrant Allies wants protection for dreamers to be included in the bill.

Advocacy Co-Director of Greater Lafayette Immigrant Allies Margaret Hass says there is a sense of urgency, and Congress needs to act now to protect dreamers across the country and in Indiana.

"It's just a bigger issue of these are the people in our community and they have the right to be here, and they deserve to have those protections," Hass said.

Hass encourages everyone to follow the Greater Lafayette Immigrant Allies Facebook page to learn about more ways to help advocate for people in the community.
