Cosecha’s Call: Monday, January 23rd at 9pm EST
“Many of you have heard rumors about Trump repealing DACA this week. We have no way of knowing for sure what is going to happen now that he is president, but we do know that on the campaign trail, he promised to get rid of DACA and deport 2-3 million in his first few months in office. We’re getting ready for whatever happens!… We have to be ready to fight no matter what and for something permanent. We have to fight for dignity and respect for all 11 million of us. We’re getting ready to take escalated action. I really do believe that we can win. Because this country depends on us and no one, not Trump, not ICE, not Trump’s most racist supporters will be able to stop us if we decide to show this country que sin manos no hay obra.”
