President Obama Signs Executive Order for DREAMers
Mark your calenders because history has been made! How does it feel to be a part of such a great advancement?
Yesterday marked the first day of Deferred Action, which prevents DREAMers from being deported. President Obama signed it after a series of hunger strikes & protests began in his campaign offices. This is what happens when DREAMers stick together; They can achieve anything.
It’s no wonder Mitt Romney is beginning to change his view on immigration. Studies show that most Latinos would reelect President Obama.
So what is Deferred Action?
Deferred Action is a law making DREAMers undeportable. Even if they are already in deportation, the case will be closed. It’s a small step but it’s huge for DREAMers. The new plan also gives DREAMers a work permit, so not only can they stay in the country, but they can work in it, too. So what does this mean? The DREAM Act is one step closer to being passed.
If you’re a DREAMer that has not yet completed the forms for Deferred Action, you may find them here. I truly admire those who have done something positive about the DREAM Act, regardless of how big or small it was. Congratulations, DREAMers, you are all making history!
