Amid reports that President Donald Trump will be ending the "Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals" (DACA) policy that protected people brought illegally to the United States as children from being deported, the Women's March has pledged to make his life "impossible."
Later, they tweeted that while DACA is not dead, people need to keep fighting.
IMPORTANT: Contrary to reports, DACA isn't dead yet.— Women's March (@womensmarch) August 31, 2017
Louder than before.
Spread the message to all: #DefendDACA
According to White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, Trump has not yet made a final decision yet on DACA. Plus, DACA was never codified into law.
On Twitter, other people chimed in and said that Trump was promoting racism by ending DACA and wanted to break apart families.
The only reason to be happy about Trump ending DACA is that you're a racist. There's literally no other reason.— Jesse Berney (@jesseberney) August 31, 2017
Please tell me that Trump isn't making waves about rescinding #DACA while Houston, a city that's 44% Hispanic, is underwater! Please!!!— Charles M. Blow (@CharlesMBlow) August 31, 2017
The end of #DACA would rip apart families, instill fear in communities, make our nation less safe, and hurt our economy.— Joaquin Castro (@JoaquinCastrotx) August 31, 2017
Mr. President, you promised compassion for Dreamers. Ending DACA is as heartless as it is pointless. These kids have no other home but here.— Adam Schiff (@AdamSchiffCA) August 31, 2017
