Speech for Dreamers/DACA

Close to where we are today, my family and ancestors lived and died hundreds of years before the idea of “America” or a “United States” was even dreamed up. All across these lands Natives lived, worked, played, grew societies, raised families, faced hardships, and experienced joy for tens of thousands of years before the first European set foot on this land. We’re tied to this land, and our fate rests with it. So it is with strong conviction that I say that no, we’re not all immigrants.
