Repost from @humansofny Please take the time to read in entirety...“We were pretty poor back in Mexico. My parents were divorced. Mom did the best she could. She was always a hustler. She’d sell jewelry, or food, or anything that she could. But a lot of nights there still wouldn’t be enough to eat. We’d survive on tortillas and salt. I was only eight when we came to America. So I was too young to understand. I think my mom thought she could make some money and bring us home. She thought she’d learn English, and maybe start a business. But it was so much harder than she expected. We moved so much looking for work. She’s fifty and she still cleans houses every day. Every year she gets more worn down. She’s been getting sick a lot lately. But she can’t afford to stop. She never will. Right now I’m in school. I always thought I had to be the best student because I’m undocumented. I thought I’d go to law school, or graduate school. But now I’m not so sure. My mom would literally destroy her body to make that happen for me. How could I allow that to happen? I’m a Dreamer. And everyone loves the Dreamers because we’re a perfect package to sell. But why am I the only one who gets the chance to feel safe? Whenever I hear ‘I stand with Dreamers,’ I always think about my mom. I’m not willing to throw her under the bus. I'm not willing to be a bargaining chip to make her seem like a criminal. Everything people admire about Dreamers is because of our parents.” #repost#dreamers#defenddreamers#defenddaca#DACA#marisolshortfilm#formandpressurefilms#humansofnewyork#humansofny
By texting "resist" to this number, it will provide you with a template to type a message to your senators and will send it to them as a fax! This is free and fast and very important. Please take a minute to try this out. .
Track 12 on #RiseShineWoke is called "Walls." Humanizing undocumented immigrants and putting stories and faces and voices to us will create empathy. We have to stand up for our brothers and sisters. #DefendDACA#nohumanisillegal
