The 90’s pop sensation, Britney Spears, recently shared an Instagram post in an unapologetic sign of support for DREAMers. Spears, pictured with a cropped t-shirt reading, “We are all Dreamers,” told her fans, “We are all Dreamers. Tell Congress to pass the #DreamAct.”
The image got posted on the singer’s Instagram and Twitter accounts, where she added, “Tell Congress to pass the #DreamAct http://emersoncollective.com/Dreamers.”
Following the 2017 trend of celebrities getting vocal regarding their political views and social issues, Britney Spears now officially joins others like Becky G, Daddy Yankee and Jennifer Lopez in the fight to rally support for DREAMers. In September, President Donald Trump decided to end the DACA policy created in the Obama-era.
The policy granted immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as minors a two-year renewable period of deferred action from deportation. It also allowed DREAMers to pursue work and education without fear of repercussions.
After Congress did not include the DreamAct in this year’s spending bill, 1,400 DACA enrollees are losing their protections daily, which translates to losing work permits, college enrollments, and financial aid. There are more than 700,000 enrollees in the United States who’s everyday life is turned upside down.
The fight is not over, and it’s up to the people to remind Congress that passing the DREAMAct is something that matters to American citizens.
