“Always remember that the greatest act of solidarity is showing up, and that goes beyond a like, a tweet, a post or a comment.” Repost @IvanCejatv: “Today we stood in solidarity with immigrants from 13 countries that are impacted by TPS. These countries are El Salvador 🇸🇻, Honduras 🇭🇳, Nicaragua 🇳🇮, Haiti 🇭🇹, Yemen 🇾🇪, Syria 🇸🇾, Nepal , Somalia 🇸🇴, Sudan 🇸🇩, South Sudan 🇸🇸, Liberia 🇱🇷, Guinea 🇬🇳, and Sierra Leone 🇸🇱. These countries should also stand united and be acknowledged and that’s why I designed this shirt. 👕 . . I did not immigrate to the US from any of these countries. I am an undocumented immigrant originally from Michoacán, México 🇲🇽. I am a DACA beneficiary and I would be eligible for the DreamAct. However, some of my close friends and people in my community are greatly affected by the recent announcements and attacks on TPS. The saying goes — “an attack on one of us is an attack on all of us” & we can’t take this message lightly. RiseUpAsOne . . This is beyond 200,000 Salvadorans 🇸🇻 with TPS. This is about 192,000 citizen children that will also be affected. This is about the 59,000 Haitians 🇭🇹 - 2,000 Nicaraguans 🇳🇮 - from Sudan 🇸🇩 and the millions of us that call them neighbors, family and friends. ProtectTPS . . Always remember that the greatest act of solidarity is showing up, and that goes beyond a like, a tweet, a post or a comment.” . . *Common TPS Question: If they’ve been here so long why haven’t they just become citizens? . . Answer: Because citizenship isn’t like ordering a pumpkin spice latte & you try ordering a pumpking spice latte when they aren’t being sold. There isn’t a pathway to citizenship for them.
