DACA and the ramifications.

So.

How many Trump supporters who are currently cheering the end of DACA, are going to step up and fill those jobs and positions the Dreamers who now stand to be deported- roughly 800,000- that were supposedly 'stolen' from them? You know, the jobs none of them would have done even if they'd been given the opportunity.

How many are going to step up and buy the properties the Dreamers who own them, now have to sell before they get deported? You know, the houses they paid taxes on, the vehicles they paid taxes on, and so on.

Trump supporters, the DACA recipients are your neighbors, your friends, your children's friends, and even your coworkers. Some are parents to naturally born American children themselves.

Congrats, you've helped screw them over.

I hope you feel proud of yourselves, when the cost of produce goes up due to lack of labor to bring in the harvests, when the price of goods you took for granted goes up because there's no longer anyone to stock the shelves, to transport the goods to the stores, to even manufacture the goods in the first place.

Don't give me that line about how they should have come over legally. Age of consent in the US is *18*. Not a single Dreamer was of age to consent to being brought to the US.

As far as doing it legally... What the devil do you think they *were doing*? What do you think they were registering every year to two years, paying hundreds of dollars each time, keeping their heads down, paying taxes, being good citizens for? *They were doing it legally as they were allowed and told to do*. It costs *thousands* to become a US citizen,as well as *years* and many need a sponsor first. That's what they were working towards when they came of age.

And now, all that work is going to be taken away from them.

This is what you've wrought. Now we all have to live with it.
