“Papi, can we stay?”
Four words sum up what’s at stake for millions in a new ad that encourages Americans to vote in this year’s Presidential election.
The ad from filmmaker Joss Whedon never explicitly says that any of the ad’s characters are immigrants — or mentions Donald Trump by name — but the fate of the nation’s 11 million undocumented immigrants has been one of the defining issues of this election.
While his opponent Hillary Clinton has pledged to protect families and introduce comprehensive immigration reform in her first 100 days, Trump has promised a wall and “deportation force” to round up and force out most, if not all, of the 11 million undocumented immigrants settled in the US.
His strategy would rip apart families and communities — but not if we get out to vote this November.
