THE TEXAS OPPORTUNITY COALITION
The Texas Opportunity Coalition (TOC) unites businesses, institutions, executives, and leaders from across Texas who understand the economic benefit Dreamers add to our economy, and who are committed to passing a federal congressional solution to protect the Dreamers who call Texas home. These individuals are business owners, essential workers, college students and homeowners, and Texas benefits from their economic contributions and talents.
Texas is home to more than 213,000 Dreamers, and they contribute $6 billion in GDP annually to the state’s economy. Some of them have been able to work and contribute to their communities through the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, but their status under this program is uncertain until Congress acts. Providing these Texans with permanent legal status is essential for both our post-COVID economic recovery and our long-term economic growth and prosperity.
