Immigrant Youth: Bannon Was Not #HereToStay, But We Are

United We Dream Press Releases

Washington, DC– Today, United We Dream released the following statement regarding Steven Bannon’s exit from the Trump Administration.

Greisa Martinez Rosas, Advocacy Director of United We Dream, and a DACA beneficiary said:

“One less white supremacist in the White House is welcome news, but the real question is whether his priorities will still reign supreme. Bannon was a key promoter of hate, vilifying and criminalizing immigrants, Muslims and people of color as well as ending the DACA program.

“DACA, which now protects me and 800,000 young people from deportation hangs in the balance and Bannon or not, Trump will need to decide by September 5 whether he will kill the program and deport us.

“Let’s not forget there are still many racist advisors like Bannon inside the White House. Our fight against Trump’s policies of hate will continue because we are #heretostay.”
