"We are still undocumented, unafraid, and unashamed."

After Tuesday's election results, many feel heartbroken, afraid, and disillusioned that Donald Trump will be the United States' next president.

Trump began his presidential campaign by vowing to build a wall between Mexico and the US, and later said he would deport 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the US.

But despite having a lot to be afraid of, immigrants and their allies refuse to go down without a fight.

In solidarity with all the undocumented folks out there. I am praying for your fear & I am fighting for your safety. You are #HeretoStay ✊🏽

They started the hashtag #HereToStay to tell Trump that they're not going anywhere anytime soon.

They're unashamed.

We are still undocumented, unafraid and unashamed. #HeretoStay

They're supportive.

Feel safer at school this morning because a number of classmates have reached out & pledged their support as we fight back. #HereToStay

They stand strong.

To my fellow Muslims & Immigrants. Know yourselves & never become who they say you are. Stand strong & fight with peace & love. #HeretoStay

They're fighting for their home.

I'm 18.. I've lived here for 17 years... This is my home.. #HereToStay

They're inspirational.

To the beautiful, courageous undocumented community: You inspire me daily. We will continue to fight. You are #HeretoStay. #electionday

They're dreamers.

I fight for my undocumented community and those who continue to have a dream #HeretoStay

They understand sacrifice.

As much as I say I'm going to leave this country if Trump wins, I won't. My parents sacrificed a lot to come to this country. #HeretoStay

They're immigrants...

THERE IS POWER WHEN STONES THAT HAVE BEEN REJECTED COME TOGETHER. -@RevDrBarber Undocumented. Unafraid. #HERETOSTAY Let's shut it down.
