@NBCNews THREAD: 1) This is evil, period. The people who labor in the fields in 100-degree weather are these exact immigrants. You have 🍅, 🍓 , 🍇 on your table because these immigrants pick your food. YES, they need housing assistance and food assistance, often to feed their kids.
@NBCNews 2) Farmworkers travel to Texas, Arizona, California, following the harvests to make a living & send $$$ to their families. They pay taxes & they pay their dues. They absolutely deserve a path to citizenship. The US would be depopulated if we had imposed these requirements before.
@NBCNews 3) My grandmother came to this country and her mother had to put her in an orphanage because she couldn’t afford to feed her child. The orphanage abused the kids & starved them. My grandma went on to win scholarships & worked until she got married. My grandma earned citizenship.
@NBCNews 4) Trump’s immigration policy is based on nothing but racism and a desire to punish immigrants. The policy is bad for our farmers and our dairy owners. It’s bad for our neighborhoods and our communities. It’s bad for our immigrant families & their kids, who are often US CITIZENS.
@NBCNews I’ve been fighting this since Nov. 6, 2016, and I’m going to keep fighting it. On behalf of my grandmother and all my immigrant grandparents. For my immigrant neighbors. For the real America I love, where people from all over the world make our new home. NOT IN MY NAME.
