The Women’s March said in a tweet Thursday that its members will make President Donald Trump’s life “impossible” if he chooses to end the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.
The group “signed” the tweet with the 5 million women that marched against Trump after his inauguration. The tweet laments the possible rollback of DACA, a policy allowing immigrants that came to the U.S. as children to stay for at least two years, at which point they can apply to renew their permit to stay within the country.
If you end DACA, we will make your life impossible.

The policy makes them eligible to work as well, and while they do not have lawful status, thousands of illegals have stayed in the country through DACA renewals. Passed in 2012 by former President Barack Obama, DACA may come to an end under Trump. He campaigned on the promise of abolishing DACA, and has allegedly said that program will soon end, according to unconfirmed talk by Fox News and The Hill.
The Women’s March has been tweeting regularly about immigration and the deportation of “Dreamers,” — the colloquial term for children in the program — as well as Hurricane Harvey, which continues to reek havoc on Texans.
