1. FACT CHECK: Dreamers DID NOT break the law. They were brought here BY THEIR PARENTS as children. They are not responsible and should not be penalized for someone else’s wrong. #basicethics #nosoullesspolitics #TruthMatters #DreamActNow
2. FACT CHECK: Dreamers DO PAY TAXES. Under DACA Dreamers are able to work, pay taxes, Social Security, build businesses, pay business registration fees, etc. #TrumpShutDown pitting Dreamers against “tax paying Americans” is ignorant as hell. #nosoullesspolitics #DreamActNow
3. FACT CHECK: Who is holding whom hostage? #TrumpShutdown is holding America hostage—trying to force us into #humansacrifice ritual: “Choose white children over brown immigrants. Dems said #NO! #ShutItDown #WeSeeYou #DreamActNow #nosoullesspolitics .@chuckschumer @NancyPelosi
4. FACT CHECK: .@BarackObama did not pass DACA by executive order. Look for it. You won’t find it. DACA was LEGAL reprioritization of deportations—a power the President absolutely has. #WeAreNotStupid #TrumpShutDown is #SoullessPolitics #DreamActNow .@SenSchumer @NancyPelosi
5. FACT CHECK: CHIP instituted by @BillClinton in 1997. Every Congress since has reauthorized. #GOP CHOSE NOT TO REAUTHORIZE 120+ DAYS AGO. Now GOP whipping out CHIP to play children like pawns chessboard. #WeAreNotStupid #SoullessPolitics #ShutItDown .@SenSchumer @NancyPelosi
please check out this thread! #ThinkBIGSundayWithMarsha #DreamAct
6. FACT CHECK: Trump commercial claims: If Dems get #DreamAct, they will be complicit in all crimes by undocumented immigrants. Guess what?! To qualify for #DACA Dreamers have to PASS a rigorous BACKGROUND CHECK. #LIAR #SoullessPolitics #TrumpShutdown #ShutItDown .@SenSchumer
