Some call these young undocumented people Dreamers. We know them as visionaries.* Young undocumented people protested for years and risked arrest and deportation, eventually winning DACA in 2012. They won protections from deportation for 800,000 youth that Trump and Sessions just took away.
But their visionary movement goes beyond DACA – it’s about fighting for all 11 million undocumented immigrants.
That’s why as Trump and Pelosi discuss deals over dinner to bring back DACA at the cost of more enforcement and border militarization — we must fight against walls in any form.
We have to keep fighting for the vision that** dream of — a place where all immigrant youth and their parents and loved ones are welcome. We support Dreamers, and we need to fight for their freedom dreams.
Stay tuned for upcoming actions.
