DEFENDING AND EXPANDING DACA IS A POWERFUL VACCINE AGAINST THE DISEASE OF WHITE SUPREMACY

Aug. 29, 2017

Statement from Matt Nelson, Executive Director, Presente.org:

Today hundreds of thousands of dreamers — our children, our brothers and sisters, our friends and neighbors — face widespread and brutal deportation from the only home they have ever known, because of the White Supremacist-in-Chief. President Trump has the power to help our communities, align with core American values of fairness and compassion, and do what’s right by supporting DACA and pushing for a more permanent path for just immigration. The consequences of deportation would be disastrous for DACAmented people and their families, which is why our members fought to win DACA under President Obama and it's why we continue to assert the right to stay for our loved ones. President Trump must use his executive authority for good, not for evil, by preserving the DACA program while pushing for its expansion through congressional action.
