Over the past five years, DACA has provided 800,000 immigrant youth protection from deportation, the opportunity for higher education and jobs, and more stability to our communities. Similarly, TPS has aided over 300,000 immigrants from Africa, Haiti, Central America, Syria, Yemen and other countries that have suffered from major catastrophes.
That's why across the country, thousands of immigrant youth and allies will continue to take to the streets to demand the Trump administration protect the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) and the Temporary Protected Status (TPS) programs.
DACA recipients, immigrants protected under TPS, and our allies have a message to the Trump administration: We have won before, we will win again, and we are #HereToStay.
