DREAMer: Trump’s Deal to Preserve DACA But Escalate Deportations is a “Toxic Deal We Cannot Accept”
11 October 2017
President Trump said Sunday he will not restore DACA—the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program—that protects hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants from deportation—unless lawmakers agree to expand the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border and move to keep out thousands of children fleeing gang violence in Central America. We get response from Cesar Vargas, who is himself a DACA recipient. He’s the co-director of DREAM Action Coalition and New York state’s first openly undocumented attorney.
The Trump White House sent a document to Congress Sunday night outlining its demands on immigration policy, calling for a further build-up of the federal police agencies that target undocumented immigrants, a legal witch-hunt against cities and states that are reluctant to cooperate in mass arrests and detentions, and a sharp reduction in legal immigration as well: here.

I was just as American as anyone else. In high school I ran track and field, I went to prom, and I applied to college. Like many seniors in high school applying for financial aid, I realized I would need to know my Social Security number (SSN) to qualify. I asked my mom for my SSN and she told me I didn’t have one—she told me that I was undocumented.
At 24, I went to court in Baltimore every month to find out if I was going to be deported. I had to show my student records, I had to get affidavits from my friends and I had to show I had no criminal record. But when the judge saw my parents enter the courtroom I watched him change his mind about me. I was only able to beat deportation because both of my parents were disabled, allowing me to qualify for cancellation of removal. During my last deportation hearing, the judge granted my protection.
I was lucky, but there are still 800,000 Dreamers who need permanent status. Call your Senators today and urge them to vote for a clean Dream Act.
With my back against the wall for so much of my life, I learned to rely on my natural gifts and figure out what I could do to make ends meet and survive. I put myself through college on the small amount of money I made as a freelance designer and what my mom could spare from her disability checks. I did all of this while facing deportation.
Now, I use my talents as Our Revolution’s Head Graphic Designer to advocate for progressive change, including immigration justice. Every Dreamer has the right to experience the same thing that I am now experiencing.
I am fighting for a clean Dream Act because I don’t want anyone else to experience the fear of deportation hearings. There should be a clear approach for people like me who came here at a young age, who have clean records, who want to provide for their families and who are upstanding citizens.
I was brought to America when I was three years old from Nigeria. My parents raised me to be a good person, to treat others with kindness and respect, and to stand up for what is right.
I need you to stand up for what is right too. Call your Senators and urge them to vote for a clean Dream Act.
