So thanks to NAFTA, we can "freely" trade with Mexico, i.e. exploit their goods and poor people who are literally dying to survive, but we close the doors/borders on these same people? Hypocrisy doesn't even begin to describe it. It's criminal. But that's been the legacy of European-American Imperialism, I suppose. Manifest destiny. But we don't have to be defined this way! WE have the power to create and thus recreate our reality, and embody our philosophy of freedom we so proudly preach. The irony is that Mexicans aka native Americans aka North Americans were here before Europeans. THEY are true natives to this land. Our government is run by a bunch of thugs, criminals, and bigots, starting with its orange-haired leader... defend and fight for our fellow Americans. #lostrueamericans #nativeamericans #northamericans #centralamericans #southamericans #defenddaca #humanrights

Today’s #SignOfResistance is by @justseeds’ @nicolaslampert. Here’s the deal: we need each and every one of us to put pressure on Republicans in Congress to support a #CleanDREAMAct with no compromises. Head to DreamActToolKit.org to call and tweet at key lawmakers to secure passage of the #DREAMAct and make it clear that 800,000 #DREAMers are not bargaining chips.
