Dreamers are the American Dream
Every child, regardless of where they come from, what they look like, or where they live, deserves to pursue their dreams. The Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program has proven to be an unqualified success, providing new opportunities and futures for nearly 800,000 Dreamers who live, study and work in the United States. Dreamers contribute to their families, communities, and to the country that is their home. Instead of honoring the courage and commitment of those who would do anything to make life better for those they love, certain politicians are putting our children’s future at risk. Then they turn around and try to divide and distract us by generating fear based on race or place of origin. We have the power to demand that leaders do right by all children. By coming together across racial differences, we can make this a nation that reflects the best of America’s values – one where children’s dreams are possible – no exceptions.
