GUILTY OF GOOD INTENTIONS (for the parents of DACA dreamers)

The relativity of “legalese”

Makes terms like, “good moral character” vague.

They ignore humanitarian pleas,

And refer to people like they’re a plague.

Parents guilty of good intentions,

Hard work, and wanting the best for their kids.

Good students threatened with ICE detention

For “crossing of borders” they never did!

Raised American- just hyphenated

Working, fighting wars, and paying taxes;

Turned political football, and debated.

The American dream’s been thrown off axis.

Dreamers make America great again.

Not recognizing this should be a sin.
