Stories are emerging every day. DREAMers are being rounded up by ICE. Trump’s words – that DREAMers “shouldn’t be too worried” and “those incredible kids” – are so BS, we don’t even know what to say.
Among the many young people who have been detained we highlight Daniela Vargas, the 22-year-old DREAMer who was arrested after giving a press conference in Jackson, MI. She is set to be deported without a court hearing.
Vargas arrived in the U.S. from Argentina when she was only 7 years old. She is now 22 and a loyal American, pursuing her math studies and wishes to do whatever she can to help her country, the United States.
Vargas was detained by immigration authorities after speaking at a news conference in Mississippi about her fears of being deported. It appears to be retribution for those comments. We fear she will be deported on today.
Step 1: Call Richard Durbin, a leading democrat from Illinois who has taken an interest in DACA and this issue specifically. Call him and ask him to: “Thank you and please help to keep Daniela Vargas safe and in the US. We need more DREAMers like her, and we need action, not fake promises from Trump!”

Step 2: Call your own senator(s) and tell them the same. By now, you probably know their phone numbers. If not, use the link in the top right of our blog.
Step 3: Join United We Dream (whether you’re a DREAMer or supporter) and sign a petition to Department of Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly demanding Vargas’s release.
BREATHE AND STEP FORWARD!
