Local organizations stand up against decision to disband DACA

Posted September 6

— An organization called, #PAResist, plans to occupy at least 16 local lawmakers offices on Wednesday in response to the decision to disband DACA.

"The move by Trump to end DACA can only be seen as a move towards instituting white nationalism, in a shameless attempt to further appease the white supremacists inspired by his campaign of hate to secure the presidency. There can be no confusion about the fact that this would be a direct attack on our communities, removing legal status for 800,000 immigrant youth. Anti-immigrants love to say 'get in line,' 'pay your fees,' 'follow the rules.' The DACAmented did all of that, there is no justification for putting their lives in jeopardy other than anti-immigrant hate. We will hold accountable every Congressman in Pa who doesn't stand up to denounce this act of legal terror." --Statement from Adanjesus Marin, Director of Make the Road Pennsylvania.
