Some people forget that DACA recipients are diverse in culture, race, age, religion sex and gender. The attendants on Saturday’s march reflected that diversity and made the march one of the most diverse DACA rally yet.

The Trump deal does not include the original dreamer which are those immigrants that age out of DACA or did not have the proper education requirements.  Immigration is not selective to the elite and wealthy immigration include men and women that work in hard labor such immigrants deserve a pathway to citizenship also.

The Trump adminstration continues to criminalize dreamers– 99.9 % of dreamers have no criminal record. In order to have DACA you can not have a Criminal record. In fact immigrants in general tend to have lower crime rates than the citizen population.
