#DefendDACA or take your racist ass and fuck off

My ancestors were immigrants.

I am here today only because my great grandparents sailed across the great Asian continent. Caught in the storm of the civil war, they left China for a better life. I never met my great grandparents but i know that they are the bravest people to have walked this earth. To risk your life for a fresh start and weather the perilous journey to Singapore takes a fucking lot of courage.

Immigrants are as human as you are. All we ever wanted was somewhere to call home. Is that really too much to ask for?

Today Donald Trump announced that he is ending the DACA. This vicious and conscious decision to rip apart the lives of #Dreamers is an act of systematic racism. But the fight to #DefendDACA is not over. There are so many things to be done.

Dreamers are a vital force in the American economy but their value is beyond just being workers. They are humans the way you and I are. We fight for the Dreamers not solely to save the American economy. We fight for them because we are humans and because the decision to end DACA is an act of child abuse. If you care about the lives of these young immigrants, here is what you can do to help.

  1. Text Resist to 50409. If you’re not American, all you need in a Facebook account to text Resistbot on Messenger.
  2. Sign the petition to Resist over here.
  3. Tweet the AGs who are pressuring the government to end DACA. info is here. alternatively, see this template of things to tweet.
  4. Make a service call to you senators. see more here.
  5. Fund the DACA support here. You can also donate to Resistbot.
  6. Educate yourself. 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
  7. Keep fighting. Tweet #DefendDACA. it doesn’t hurt.

These are 800 000 lives at stake. Please, if you are human, then fight for the Dreamers. They deserve to keep their legal status in the only place they know best. Home.

As a descendant of immigrants, I am begging all of you to help us in this fight. So much of the world has been made possible by immigrants. We are here to help and not to harm. All we ever wanted was somewhere to call home.

Is that really too much to ask for?
