The "us vs them" language he uses makes it abundantly clear what his motivations are, and it's not upholding the law. We demand #DefendDACA! #DefendDACA Or if you can't join us RT this + then let your Congress members know you support #DACA pic.twitter.com/UEb97oMTIY

Nearly 1 million young immigrant #DREAMers will be at risk of deportation if @realDonaldTrump ends #DACA. To a country she doesn’t know or remember, with a language she may not even speak?”

Trump has no clue what he's doing with North Korea, with DACA, with any American values. I proudly will #DefendDREAMers! The policy, formed under the Obama administration and implemented in 2012 to protect from deportation the nearly 800,000 young undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. It is self-defeating – because they want to start new businesses, staff our labs, serve in our military, and otherwise contribute to the country we love,” Obama said in a poignant Facebook post. Callous. Find out where the DACA protest is where u live and SHOW UP! — Russell Simmons (@UncleRUSH) September 4, 2017

Furious and heartbroken to see the U.S. — Kristen Bell (@IMKristenBell) September 5, 2017

A cowardly act by a cruel, vindictive and heartless administration intent on tearing at the very fabric of the American dream. #DefendDREAMers https://t.co/zKRcf9JDnp

Ending #DACA is about racism. People have an idea in their mind about what an undocumented person looks like but truth? abandon #DACA, which made our country stronger and more prosperous. What if our kid’s science teacher, or our friendly neighbor turns out to be a Dreamer? — John Green (@johngreen) September 5, 2017

I hope that by the time I have to explain Trump to my kids, they'll never have a frame of reference to understand how bad he really was. They are failing us, and our forefathers would be ashamed. This is CRUEL. The Trump administration formally announced on Tuesday the end of DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). If we are ever to be a decent country, this is your moment. But exactly what's expected of these cowards. After Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced the news, the president said in a written statement: “I do not favor punishing children, most of whom are now adults, for the actions of their parents. #DefendDACA

While many are protesting at Trump Tower and in D.C., Los Angeles, Denver, and New York City, sharing their outrage and heartbreak over the announcement, others are expressing their grievances on social media, including former President Obama
