We are neighbors, friends, and classmates. Aspiring to be doctors, scientists and community leaders. Why wouldn’t we want US in our country’s future? Our success is America’s success.

Like so many American citizens whose family came to this great nation seeking a better life, I too am a dreamer. And like the majority of these so-called Dreamers, most of us have been blessed with American born children.

Why are there are 200,000 Salvadorans being forced to leave their US homes next year. Think of the uncertainty, fear, and grief facing these families, and what about the 45,000 Haitians, 2,500 Nicaraguans, 57,000 Hondurans, and 800,000 Dreamers whose lives have been turned upside-down by this administration's immigration policies.

Just like all of US, these folks came to here because they faced insurmountable political obstacles at home, or displaced by natural disasters, violence, and poverty.

To leave the safety and comfort of home, it has to be a serious reason. Like everyone else who lives in The United States of America, it is because they envisioned a better life here and have become invaluable assets to this nation's economy, its local communities, and schools. This issue affects all neighborhoods and multiple nationalities. Dreamers work harder than any member of Congress or the [erson occupying The Whitehouse.

We are part of the strong and vibrant fabric of this great country, and deportation will be disastrous for the U.S. Contact @POTUS and Congress to object the termination of temporarily protected status for Sudan, Nicaragua, Haiti and now El Salvador. Tell them it is a cruel attack on immigrants in the USA This move will rip apart many families and communities. Say I call on you to pass legislation immediately that provides legal permanent residency and a pathway to citizenship for all TPS holders, such as the American Promise Act.
They work for all of us and your voice is important.
