Immigrants And Their Children Clap Back At Trump With "#ImAlreadyHome" Tweets

"Citizenship is more than laws, papers, where you're born."

Posted on

On Jan. 25th, Trump signed two executive orders to build a wall along the US–Mexico border and strip funding for sanctuary cities. He also plans to publish a weekly list of crimes committed by undocumented immigrants.

In response to this, Huffington Post Latino Voices put out a call for pro-immigrant stories using the hashtag #ImAlreadyHome.
