Tuesdays with Dana, 1/16/18

Today in front of congressman Dana Rohrabacher's office, the Indivisible OC 48 folks stood up for the over 800,000 DACA recipients who are being used as pawns in the trump administration's attempt to exert their draconian immigration policies on an electorate that overwhelmingly disagrees with such measures. By preying on the widespread popularity of the DACA program, trump is hoping to make a deal for their protection contingent upon the addition to the federal budget discriminatory immigration policies that America has stated loudly and clearly are unacceptable to the very idea of America. A promise has been made to these upstanding citizens, and this promise is under threat of being broken. When the United States government forms a contract with its constituents, it is incumbent on that government to honor the promises made, or suffer the stain of the destruction of public faith. Today in trump's dark America, we are seeing more and more promises broken both domestically and internationally. We have stood in line to be heard by our congressional representative, and we saw the door closed in our faces. We are showing the people of Orange County that when you try to silence Americans who will fight for what is right and decent, that we will work together to ensure that the promise of democracy is kept.
