We Will Win! Immigrants and Allies from Home is Here Coalition Come Together in Houston to Fight Back

Contact: press@unitedwedream.org

Houston, T.X. – Fifty immigrant youth and advocates from 15+ immigrant rights, educators advocacy, and legal organizations are coming together in Houston to relaunch the Home is Here coalition that helped to protect the DACA program and immigrant youth at the Supreme Court in 2020. 

Texas serves as an important convening space for the coalition, given recent efforts from right-wing politicians to pass several anti-immigrant bills and after the governor’s deadly use of razor wire buoys in the Rio Grande caused an uproar across the country. The attack on the DACA program originated in Texas by Attorney General Ken Paxton and Governor Greg Abbott.

The Home is Here coalition released the following statement: 

“We’re  gathering together in Houston next week to echo our message: immigrants are here to stay! The past decade has been a rollercoaster for immigrant youth and the immigrant community at large dealing with attacks from right wing politicians who will stop at nothing to use immigrants as scapegoats for their unpopular and inhumane policies.  As Texas has become a hub for these attacks, we’re set to convene our historic Home is Here campaign that has won against those same right wing politicians to remind them that this is our home and we will win. We know that Texas is big enough for everyone and we will continue to fight to make it a welcoming place where all people can live and thrive.”


The Home Is Here national coalition is fighting to protect DACA recipients, their families, and all immigrant communities at the U.S. Supreme Court. DACA recipients are undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. They are also our nurses, our teachers, our coworkers, our family members, and our friends — and their home is here.

This March marks 21 years of ICE CBP & DHS terrorizing our immigrant communities.

Ever since their creation, ICE and CBP have targeted, detained, abused and deported immigrants while separating loved ones and tearing apart communities. Donate 21 dollars to help us fight back against the 21 years of terror.
