and
Our Dreamer Issac, born in Ghana and a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA) beneficiary he tells his story and puts a human face on those who seek equal rights and justice as immigrants as refugees as migrants, as Dreamers!

President Trump ordered an end to the Obama-era program that shields young undocumented immigrants from deportation, calling it an amnesty-first approach and urging Congress to pass a replacement before he begins phasing out its protections in six months. As early as March, officials said, some of the 800,000 young adults brought to the United States illegally as children who qualify for the program, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, will become eligible for deportation. The five-year-old policy allows them to remain without fear of immediate removal from the country and gives them the right to work legally.

Mr. Trump as well as Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who announced the change at the Justice Department, both used the aggrieved language of nativists of virulently anti-immigrant activists, arguing wrongly, but aggressively that those in the country illegally are lawbreakers who hurt native-born Americans by usurping their jobs and pushing down wages. Mr. Trump said in a statement that he was driven by a concern for the millions of Americans victimized by this unfair system. Mr. Sessions said the program had denied jobs to hundreds of thousands of Americans by allowing those same illegal aliens to take those jobs. But Oscar Chacon , Chia Chia Wang and Issac come out swinging and explode these falsehoods, calculated to whip up hysteria in in support of the demagogic Trump regime.
