On Tuesday, September 5, Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that the Trump/Pence Regime plans to “rescind” the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program. This means that 800,000 Dreamers — undocumented youth brought to this country as children – could soon be deemed “illegal” and targeted for deportation. For many of them this is the only country they have ever known. They have all provided authorities information that now can be used against them and their families.
Amina Gonzales of RefuseFascism.org said: “This threat against Dreamers is a vicious
escalation of the violent assertion of xenophobic white supremacy which is a hallmark of the Trump/Pence fascist regime. This is cruel, inhumane, and everyone should protest! The Trump/Pence regime – with its backing for white supremacists in the streets and their pardon of the racist Sheriff Arpaio – is illegitimate and must be driven from office. November 4, it begins!”
This threat against DACA is unacceptable! It is also just one piece of the whole Trump/Pence fascist agenda. Below is just a sample of what they have done already:
— Trump’s first act in office was an executive order targeting ALL 11 million undocumented
immigrants for deportation regardless of any criminal record.
— Arrests of immigrants are up almost 40% from record highs under Obama.
— Every day since Trump/Pence came to office over 400 people have been ripped away from their lives, families, and jobs by ICE. (For fuller documentation of what the have done and what they are preparing to do, read 7 Crimes Against Humanity.)
Protests began immediately after Sessions’ press conference and continued into the night in many places.
Refuse Fascism was within many of these protests, uniting with the demand to defend DACA, and challenging them with an understanding of the need and the way to put an end to the nightmare of the Trump/Pence regime. Get a feel for this in a video from a New York demonstration (below).

That night, building projections organized by Refuse Fascism posted huge images with messages such as “Dreamers Stay … Trump/Pence GO!” in cities coast to coast. (More pictures of DACA rallies here.)
RefuseFascism.org calls on everyone to join with the protests taking place across the country against this outrage.
This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go!
On November 4, many thousands will take to the streets day after day and night after night, growing eventually to millions and refusing to stop until our demand is met: This Nightmare Must End: The Trump/Pence Regime Must Go! We also call on everyone who is horrified by this vicious attack on Dreamers, along with all the other crimes of the Trump/Pence Regime, to join in getting organized for November 4.
