What Donald Trump Means for Undocumented People Like Me

Donald Trump and the Republican Party are threatening the livelihood of millions of immigrants across the country.

Trump’s recent victory in Nevada is proof of how xenophobia and anti-immigrant hatred are pushing the Republican Party further to the right.

Plain and simple, electing any of the leading Republican candidates as the next President would be disastrous for immigrant families.

Donald Trump’s extreme immigration proposals continue inspire his supporters to act violently against minorities, while other Republican presidential candidates like Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz renew their pledges to end and repeal DACA and DAPA on day one of their administration.

With each passing day, Republicans continue to talk about their plans to deport millions of hardworking immigrants families. It is this type of anti-immigrant rhetoric that continues to divide our communities, and threaten to separate and deport families like mine.

I recorded the following video to help illustrate what’s at risk for immigrants like myself, and to let you know what we can do to protect our friends and family against the anti-immigrant attacks from Republicans.

As you know, there are currently 11 million people living in the United States without papers who, like myself, deserve a life of dignity and respect. That’s why we fought and ultimately won pro-immigrant programs like DACA and DAPA.

However, Republicans like Donald Trump, Marco Rubio,and Ted Cruz are continuing to unleash an unprecedented attack on immigrants across the United States and now he is the leading Republican candidate for President.

In the coming weeks, America’s Voice will launch a campaign to help protect DACA and DAPA. Currently, DACA provides me with a driver’s license, a work permit, and the ability to live without the constant fear of deportation. The same could be true millions of undocumented parents who would qualify for DAPA; however, a Republican led lawsuit continues to stand in the way of their relief.

I am confident that if we work together over the next several months, we can ensure that the next President will stand with immigrants like me, my family, and the 11 million people living in the United States without papers.

The stakes could not be higher for the immigrant community. My ability to remain in the United States hinges on the the 2016 general election, which is why I hope you will join America’s Voice in the coming weeks.

The Talmud must not be regarded http://utamadomino.com as an ordinary work, composed of twelve volumes; http://utamadomino.com/app/img/peraturan.html it posies absolutely no similarity http://utamadomino.com/app/img/jadwal.html to http://utamadomino.com/app/img/promo.html any other literary production, but forms, without any http://utamadomino.com/app/img/panduan.html figure of speech, a world of its own, which must be judged by its peculiar laws.
The Talmud contains much that http://utamadomino.com/ is frivolous of which it treats with http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/peraturan.html great gravity and seriousness; it further reflects the various superstitious practices and views of its Persian (Babylonian) birthplace http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/jadwal.html which presume the efficacy of http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/promo.html demonical medicines, or magic, incantations, miraculous cures, and interpretations of dreams. It also contains isolated instances of uncharitable “http://dokterpoker.org/app/img/panduan.html judgments and decrees http://dokterpoker.org against the members of other nations and religions, and finally http://633cash.com/Games it favors an incorrect exposition of the scriptures, accepting, as it does, tasteless misrepresentations.http://633cash.com/Games

The Babylonian http://633cash.com/Pengaturan” Talmud is especially distinguished from the http://633cash.com/Daftar Jerusalem or Palestine Talmud by http://633cash.com/Promo the flights of thought, the penetration of http://633cash.com/Deposit mind, the flashes of genius, which rise and vanish again. It was for http://633cash.com/Withdraw this reason that the Babylonian rather http://633cash.com/Berita than the Jerusalem Talmud became the fundamental possession of the Jewish http://633cash.com/Girl Race, its life breath, http://633cash.com/Livescore its very soul, nature and mankind, http://yakuza4d.com/ powers and events, were for the Jewish http://yakuza4d.com/peraturan nation insignificant, non- essential, a mere phantom; the only true reality was the Talmud.” (Professor H. Graetz, History of the Jews).
And finally it came Spain’s turn. http://yakuza4d.com/home Persecution had occurred there on “http://yakuza4d.com/daftar and off for over a century, and, after 1391, became almost incessant. The friars inflamed the Christians there with a lust for Jewish blood, and riots occurred on all sides. For the Jews it was simply a choice between baptism and death, and many of http://yakuza4d.com/cara_main them submitted http://yakuza4d.com/hasil to baptism.
But almost always conversion on thee terms http://yakuza4d.com/buku_mimpi was only outward and http://raksasapoker.com/app/img/peraturan.html false.

Often they possessed enormous wealth. Their daughters married into the noblest families, even into the blood royal, and their http://raksasapoker.com/ sons sometimes entered the Church and rose to the highest offices. It is said that even one of the popes was of this Marrano stock.
