Undocumented Immigrants Are Sending A Clear Message To Donald Trump That They’re Here To Stay

@UNITEDWEDREAM / Twitter

Millions of Americans are living in a fear for the future since Donald Trump was announced the president-elect. Muslim women are afraid to wear their hijab. Gay people are afraid of losing marriage equality. Mixed-immigration status families are afraid of being ripped apart. The election result has sparked numerous protests across the country and those afraid of deportation are telling Trump that they are #HereToStay.

Undocumented people in America are trying to send Donald Trump a message.


They’re letting him know that they’re not going anywhere.

People are not about to let the new president undo years of work to become Americans.


People are organizing through Trump’s favorite social media platform: Twitter.


And they’re backing up their words with their actions like what happened in Berkeley, Calif.


Students at both University of California, Berkeley and Berkeley High School walked out and protested the election results where Hillary Clinton lost despite winning the popular vote.

The protests have even reached the White House…

…in two different languages.

Many are joining the movement to stand up for future generations.


The Here To Stay campaign is not letting up.

People are ready to fight to stay in this country. Their country.


While other people are standing up for their family members who are being targeted for looking different.


The silver lining? Seems like Trump winning the election has given the undocumented community more allies.

The Late Jose Fernandez Was Honored By Players Around Major League Baseball

Six weeks after the funeral of baseball star Jose Fernandez, Major League Baseball announced that the late Miami Marlins pitcher was voted the National League’s 2016 Comeback Player of the Year by his peers. The Major League Baseball Players Association held its award ceremony earlier this week and Fernandez was among the winners. Baltimore Orioles outfielder Mark Trumbo won the award in the American League.


Voting took place in the middle of September, which means the vote was not influenced by the tragic death of Fernandez.

So why did Fernandez win the award? In 2014, the then-22-year-old pitcher had his season cut short by an elbow injury. He then sat out most of the 2015 season while he recovered from Tommy John surgery on his elbow. He returned to his first full season in 2016, where he posted a 16-8 record, struck out 253 batters and maintained an ERA of 2.86.


Miami Marlins president of baseball operations Mike Hill told USA Today it’s still difficult to believe Fernandez is gone: “That reality is hard to come to grips with because of how tremendously talented he was, and what he meant to our community.”
