With the future of DACA on the line, immigrant youth pledge to fight so that all people are free to thrive.

Washington, D.C. – Today, as the Supreme Court heard oral arguments on the Trump administration’s decision to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, thousands of immigrant youth, families and allies rallied outside the Supreme Court and in other cities to declare “my home is here and I’m here to stay.” 

Greisa Martinez Rosas, DACA Recipient and Deputy Executive Director of United We Dream Action, said:

“Today I sat inside the Supreme Court to witness the Trump Administration try to end DACA which protects me and 700,000 other young people from deportation. I am confident that we will prevail and I know that our communities are here to stay.

The Justices will have to choose to rule for Trump’s hate or rule for what is morally and legally right. And as we approach the 2020 election, all political leaders will need to make their choice crystal clear because we, the people are watching and will mobilize voters to the polls.

We are building a country where everyone can thrive and where politicians pass policies that help people without hurting people.  We expect the Supreme Court justices to be the check on Trump’s lawlessness.

Our home is here. We’re here to stay. And we’re ready to mobilize to defend our families, our communities, and this country’s democracy.
