If that was my son I probably would’ve accidentally killed that white man purposely.
what the fuck provokes you to kick a child. fuck dude, you deserved to get hit with full force and more.
Filed your Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) application for but have not heard back?
Don’t fret, you’re not alone.
If you look at the most recent* reports from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) regarding DACA, you’ll notice that two things are going on with the application process:
- There hasn’t been as many applicants as originally expected.
- The process has been slower than expected.
If you find yourself waiting (S/O to the applicants who are being serviced out of Vermont), then here is a handy guide on what to do while you (patiently) await to hear back from USCIS:
I have finally had some time to fix up my blog. I changed the theme and pretty much wrote a new “about me”. I like it a lot more than before although I still might change the background color, I don’t know to what tho. any suggestions? also let me know what you guys think of my new “about me” :)

Hey, did you know Border Patrol agents are fond of destroying the food and water caches left in the desert crossing so people don’t die of hunger and thirst?
179 people died crossing between Mexico and Arizona last year, where this happened.
Way to contribute to the deaths of innocent people, sworn officers of the American government!

MEET THE PEOPLE (AND STATES) WHO’VE BLOCK DRIVER’S LICENSE FOR DACA BENEFICIARIES!
Currently there are 5 states that have formally blocked Deferred Action beneficiaries from obtaining Driver’s Licenses. Let’s take a look at the people responsible for these unjust actions, and what YOU can do to help undocumented youth in those states who won’t be able to drive themselves to work.
Governor Jan “The Grinch” Brewer, unsurprisingly, conjured up an executive order shorty after the Deferred Action program came into effect on August 15th, 2012. Brewer’s order, which bars DACA beneficiaries from receiving Driver’s Licenses in the state of Arizona, was the first to issue such an order. Sounds just about right for the state that gave birth to SB1070.
How To Help: The ACLU, MALDEF and NILC have sued the state of Arizona over the matter. Contact The Arizona Dream Act Coalition for information on how to get involved, and help combat Jan Brewer’s block on DACA beneficiaries.
Department of Transportation Director Paul Trombino stated that his department does not recognize DACA beneficiaries to be “authorized to be present,” in the United States, which consequently bars them from receiving Driver’s Licenses under Iowa law.
How To Help: An online petition has been created, and circulated, calling for Iowa to grant Driver’s Licenses to DACA beneficiaries. SIGN IT HERE.
Michigan’s Secretary of State, Ruth Johnson, must have a lot of spare time in order to initiate a witch hunt against DACA beneficiaries. Following the logic of Nebraska, the state of Michigan does not provide Driver’s Licenses or state ID cards, because “the DACA doesn’t grant legal status to the individual that’s participating,”
How To Help: OneMichigan, an immigrant youth led organization, has partnered up with Michigan’s ACLU and, just like in Arizona, have sued the state in order to overturn the State Department’s decision. They have also launched an online petition, which you can SIGN HERE.
Governor Phill Bryant issued an executive order that effectively blocks DACA beneficiaries from receiving any state bound benefits, including Driver’s Licenses. The state also joined in a lawsuit against the Obama administration, and its decision to implement the Deferred Action program. What’s your deal Mississippi?
How To Help: An online petition has been created on Change.org, calling on Gov. Bryant to reverse his decision to bar DACA beneficiaries from receiving Driver’s Licenses. SIGN IT HERE.
Friend of Gov. Jan Brewer, Governor Dave Heineman, declared that his state “will continue its practice of not issuing driver’s licenses, welfare benefits or other public benefits to illegal immigrants unless specifically authorized by Nebraska statute,”
**Previously, North Carolina and Oregon both considered banning DACA beneficiaries from receiving Driver’s Licenses. After public, and online, outcry both states have reconsidered their stances and have begun issuing licenses once again. Great work to the North Carolina Dream Team and Oregon DreamActivist!**
This morning I decided to check my DACA application online and I finally saw that I have been approved! Of course it would get approved on the day I didn’t check it, which was yesterday. When I checked it today I really wasn’t even expecting it to have been approved just because every other time I checked it it was always at initial review. So now I have to wait until I get the letter in the mail saying I was approved. I’m so excited! it doesn’t feel any different right now but I know that once I get the actual work permit card and then get my social it’ll feel surreal because I’m so used to being undocumented and knowing that I now have legal papers it’ll feel different. I hope that I can get at least a permit soon since I have to wait until I’m 19 to get my license which is fine since I’m in no rush due to the fact that I know I or my parents wouldn’t be able to afford a car right now or any time soon. I’m just really happy my time has come, for any of you guys that are still waiting, I know it sucks but your time will come too and hopefully when you least expect it!
I love all the support I get on here from you guys, I know you guys don’t know who I am but in all honesty you guys know me more than some of the people I know in real life because I actually tell you guys about my issues and problems. I know I haven’t been posting as much as I used to a couple months ago but I plan on posting more often, even if it’s just little things. I also know that I don’t follow all of the blogs that follow me and if you are reading this, it isn’t because I don’t want to follow you but because I want to keep my dashboard with immigration related posts, so I hope you guys understand and I want to thank you for the support whether you’ve been following me since day one or you recently started following me :) I love you guys!
