From Greisa Martinez Rosas

  • “What we know is that this is a violent and cruel political stunt and is harming people and the immigrants that trusted this country to welcome them.”
  • “At United We Dream Action we are reminding our communities that we can do something about this. We are telling people that we deserve politicians that welcome immigrants, that ensure that we have an economy and community that works for all of us, and we are reminding people that immigrants make our communities better.”
  • “This [bussing of migrants from Texas] is a political stunt, and what will need to happen is that we tell politicians like Abbott, like Trump, like DeSantis in Florida, that enough is enough! The reality is that their rhetoric fuels white nationalism that impacts the everyday lives of undocumented people like myself.” 
  • “We must elect different politicians, we must ensure we are celebrating what everyday Americans are doing which is welcoming and clothing and feeding immigrants. We must ensure that we have policies in place that recognize that asylum seekers, refugees, undocumented DACA recipients like myself are welcomed here.”
