The most heartbreaking tweets by ‘DREAMers’ affected by today’s DACA decision
‘We didn’t choose to come here’
This morning, President Trump ordered an end to Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), an executive action that shields young undocumented immigrants from deportation.
The Obama-era action, also known as the DREAM Act, grants work permits to about 800,000 undocumented immigrants brought to the United States as children. There is no finalized plan about what the GOP will do exactly, but conversations are underway and DREAMers are terrified.
Many are calling this the most evil act Trump will oversee as president, and DREAMers everywhere are voicing their pain.
'You have no idea how I'm feeling'
I am a DREAMER and you guys have no idea how much pain I'm feeling right now knowing that Trump has decided to eliminate #DACA .

'I couldn't just go'
I was brought to this country at 3 years old by my mother. Couldn't be like "Nah, mom. I'm staying. You go."#DACA

Tomorrow is making me lose hope
I am a DREAMER who will always fight for my future, but tomorrow is making me lose hope and hide with fear.. #DefendDACA

Now, along with everything else, this has been lumped onto Congress' plate, with Trump calling on them to replace the policy with legislation before it expires on March 5, 2018.
DREAMers are working hard and fighting even harder for a country they didn't ask to come to.
Please stay strong my #DACA friends. I can't fathom what y'all are going through right now and it's breaking me 💔
