CNN recently released an article about DREAMers who are ‘threatening’ to leave the United States as a result of President Trump making them feel unsure of their status. They interviewed two girls, Alex and Daniela Velez.
“Alex and I are both over this [DACA situation]. If DACA ends, I will leave with Alex. I will close my business, leave work and school,” said Daniela. Alex agrees. “I will leave. I will leave America as soon as possible. I want to be able to leave on my terms. I’m not going to be waiting for anyone to come for me,” said Velez.
“In all honesty, it is scary to think about leaving. My mom cried for the first time since we talked about our situation. She’s a positive person and is hoping that something good will happen for us,” said Alex. Maybe her mother shouldn’t have broken into our country illegally. Actions have consequences.
“I only realized I was undocumented when I was in middle school. Most of my school friends still don’t know about my situation,” she said.
Fox News commentator Tomi Lahren said what we are thinking in response to the headline “Dreamers Threaten to Leave Country.” “Mmmm okay, bye!” tweeted Lahren in response. Her tweet got over 16,000 likes.
