As Speaker of the House Paul Ryan joins the campaign trail with Donald Trump, a man who has promised to round up 11 million immigrants; ban all Muslims from admission into the U.S.; revoke birthright citizenship from 4.5 million citizens;” and roundup Syrian refugees already resettled, this Saturday in Wisconsin, immigrant youth, DREAMers, and allies will canvass across Wisconsin to remind their neighbors exactly what is at stake this November.
DREAMers will be making the point that while Trump has pledged to end the DACA program for DREAMers immediately, Ryan has voted accordingly in the House (for example, he voted in 2014 to end President Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program for DREAMers, a program that protects approximately 750,000 immigrants from immediate deportation and allows them to work, drive, and otherwise contribute to the nation.)
This Saturday at 10 am, Voces de la Frontera Action, immigrant youth, and families will hold a press conference followed by a get-out-the-vote canvass in Wisconsin to educate voters on DACA and to urge them to vote against Trump.
