If Republican Rep. Darrell Issa had his way, he would kill DACA and put Dreamers like me on a pathway to deportation.
Unfortunately, after spending this congressional session blocking immigration reform and voting to defund DACA, Republicans are now trying to repeal it. And if that’s not enough, they’re using the crisis of children fleeing Central American violence to justify their opposition to immigrant youth and our families. It’s nasty politics that they should be ashamed of playing.
Now, more than ever, we need President Obama and Democrats to show real, bold leadership.
Sign the petition: Demand President Obama and Democrats stop cowering behind anti-immigrant Republicans. Tell them to provide our parents and families with the relief they deserve.
Let’s make one thing clear: Republicans will fail. Again. I, alongside thousands of other Dreamers, fought for DACA and we won. DACA provided me with so many opportunities that I did not have growing up and there is NO way they’re going to take that away from me.
Join us in this fight. #WeCantWait
