Five years ago, we won DACA by taking direct action— we marched, we organized, we came out of the shadows. We made it impossible for the American public and politicians to ignore our voices. Since then, DACA has provided temporary protection for hundreds of thousands of undocumented youth. It was a major victory for the immigrant rights movement— a victory that is now under threat.
We know that DACA was never enough. It is conditional and discretionary protection for only a small part of the immigrant community. Because it is not permanent protection, 800,000 undocumented youth are at risk of losing their protection.
Now more than ever, our community is under attack by white nationalists and a Republican administration that is sympathetic to violent, racist, and xenophobic actions that demand our detention and deportation.
That's why we need to fight for permanent protection for all of us. We won’t back down until all 11 million undocumented workers, parents, and children have permanent protection from deportation and the dignity and respect we deserve for the labor we give to this country.
We won DACA because we took action. Now, we're going to take action to win permanent protection for all of us.
