The illegal immigrants brought to the U.S. as children known as Dreamers say that they have been failed by Democrats who are more interested in blaming President Trump and Republicans than delivering a congressional measure that would protect the young people from deportation as they await a path to legal residency. Dreamers are done giving Dems a pass. "They don't walk their talk," said Cata Santiago, a 20-year-old Dreamer who was brought to the U.S. from Mexico when she was just 8 years old. "We're tired of it. We're tired of believing them when they say It's the Republicans.' They make promises when they're in an election, and when it's over they're done and don't do anything."
"The Democrats made the calculation to kick the can down the road and allow hundreds of thousands of us undocumented youth to live in uncertainty," said Maria Duarte, one of the participants, in a statement. "We are anxious and we are scared of being torn away from our homes and our community."
Many Dreamers say they are urging their supporters to suspend their affiliations with the Democratic Party until they see evidence that members of Congress who have portrayed themselves as working on a solution to their undocumented status are doing more than just making promises and giving reassurances.
Members of the Seed Project, a part of the Movimiento Cosecha (or the Harvest Movement), which advocates for undocumented immigrants, say they are determined "to continue to expose the Democrats' false promises."
Not saying I don't trust your source and its anecdotal evidence but...it is Fox News.
Also, can Dreamers vote?
Promises and crumbs. Everybody is tired of their lies.

I'm curious when you'll tire of Trump's lies and set down those buckets of hooker pee you've been carrying for him.
Republicans hold majorities in both the House and the Senate. Democrats were not given a magic wand.

No you're not. If you were, you'd recognize that democrats dump their "southern firewall" each and every time they get elected
only to come back round again when it's time to vote.
At least the dreamers are smart enough to see it. Crumbs and promises aren't enough anymore.

" In the House, 96 Democrats and 34 Republicans voted against the Civil Rights Act, passing with an overall 290-130 vote. ... Time magazine even largely credited Senate Minority Leader Everett Dirksen (R-Ill.) for pushing the sweeping legislation through, putting him on the cover after final passage."

Everett Dirksen wouldn't be a Republican today. Back then our politicians from both sides put America before party. You should listen to the tape of Lyndon Johnson talking to Everett Dirksen about Nixon's treason before the 1968 election where Dirkson agreed, it was treason. That would never happen today.
"We're tired of it.... we're... we're..."
I'd be curious to see just what percentage of those affected feel in the manner that is being attributed to them by the small number of people cited in this article.
