We encourage people to reach out to affected youth and families to let them know they are not alone and that there is still a movement to safeguard their rights.
For undocumented youth at this time, it is important to validate their concerns, noting that threats made to immigrant rights are serious. However, we want to remind them of the slow speed of political processes, the debate and discourse that are taking place as political and community groups champion immigrant rights, and the uncertainty about how repealing an executive order will translate into actual enforcement of immigration policies.
