Camila Cabello used her platform at the 60th annual Grammy Awards to deliver an message to President Donald Trump and members of Congress about the importance of protecting Dreamers.
During Sunday night’s (Jan. 28) Grammy Awards, before introducing U2’s performance, Camila Cabello took an opportunity to recognize all the children of undocumented immigrants who are fighting to stay in the United States — because their story is no different from hers.
“Today, in this room full of music’s dreamers, we remember that this country was built by dreamers, for dreamers, chasing the American dream,” Cabello said, just after joining Kesha and dozens of other women on the Grammy stage to perform a powerful rendition of “Praying.” “I’m here on this stage tonight because, just like the DREAMers, my parents brought me to this country with nothing in their pockets but hope. They showed me what it means to work twice as hard and never give up. And honestly no part of my journey is any different from theirs.”
“I’m a proud Cuban-Mexican immigrant, born in Eastern Havana, standing in front of you on the Grammy stage in New York City, and all I know is, just like dreams, these kids can’t be forgotten and are worth fighting for.”
Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced in September 2017 that Obama’s DACA program would officially end in March 2018. Since then, the open borders lobby, corporate interests, Republican establishment, and Democrats have worked to try to scramble together an amnesty plan that legalizes the DACA illegal aliens.Since DACA’s inception, more than 2,100 illegal aliens have been kicked off the program because they were found to be criminals or gang members.
Nearly 700,000 Dreamers are at risk of losing work permits and deportation relief after President Donald Trump moved to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival program last year.They are currently waiting for Congress to pass a Dream Act that could give deportation relief to hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants.
