"Give me your tired, your poor..."

Ending DACA is one of the cruelest act a chief executive/dictator of any nation as ever done. This doesn't just affect the DEAMERS, but also children of those dreamers, siblings, classmates, friends, employers.
The break up of families and communities is also the break up of this great expirement in democracy that this nation has taken part in for the past 241 years.

Many say this is a "Christian" nation. For who? This is a nation open to all? But only if you are white? Wealthy and from a handful of nations we approve of. There are no "illegals" just the undocumented who happen to usually be the most vulnerable.

As an immigrant myself, I came to this nation as even as a child I was inspired by the poem on the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty by Emma Lazarus:

"Give me your tired, your poor,
your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
the wretched refuse of your teeming shores,
send these the homeless tempest tossed to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door."

As lady liberty stands as a welcome beacon in the NY?NJ harbor and weeps,
it is up to us who have a voice to call out for justice, to remind our fellow
citizens of one of the original missions of this nation,
to fight for justice and to be the beloved community to make us whole.
It is time to take to the streets and DEMAND that our leaders do what is right and just!

2. What is sad is that most people do not realize or refuse to admit

that they are children of immigrants also. They came here and killed and shoved out of the way Native Americans who truly by right belong here. The people from Mexico actually have more of a right to be here as they were in regions of the country before the white man shoved them back into Mexico. This is not the first time white man has been cruel and obscene to the indigenous people.
