Resisterhood Medellin is disheartened and upset by the White House rescinding the DACA / Dream Act. This, as many politicians, scholars, and economists have concurred, is a cruel and dangerous move by the current administration. This will affect 800,000 young people, currently working, studying, LIVING in and contributing to the US, not to mention the affect on our communities, employers, universities, and the economy. Two young Colombian-American women were arrested yesterday in the US for protesting this move.
The White House has consistently aligned itself with racist, discriminatory, and dangerous policies, affecting citizens, communities, the economy, and the environment. THIS GOES AGAINST WHAT WE KNOW TO BE THE VALUES OF MOST AMERICANS.
