President Trump’s inhumane decision to revoke DACA has left thousands of undocumented people in limbo. To suggest that nothing has changed or that Congress will do the right thing and not to worry is ludicrous. Not knowing if the country you have called home is going to allow you to continue to build a life here is not only terrifying it is heartbreaking.
According to The Daily Beast,
The White House has already indicated it wants DACA recipients to leave, encouraging them to make travel plans, according to talking points obtained by CNN.
‘The Department of Homeland Security urges DACA recipients to use the time remaining on their work authorizations to prepare for and arrange their departure from the United States — including proactively seeking travel documentation — or to apply for other immigration benefits for which they may be eligible,’ the memo said.
To Trump and the GOP this is a game. They don’t care about the human beings they are affecting. Over 200,000 children may be at risk of losing their parents. Yet, they play to a deplorable base who seek to disparage anyone who is not white.
This is all part of Make America White Again and anyone who thinks it is less than that hasn’t been paying attention.
These people are not criminals have been productive members of our society. Brought here through no fault of their own we should welcome them and allow them to pursue citizenship. Their children should not have to face the horrors of thinking that their parents will be torn from them and deported to a country they have to relation to, a place and land that is not their home.
