I remember my first day of middle school.

My family had just migrated to the United States, and I didn’t speak a single word of English.

I remember that day so vividly because I’ve never felt so alone in my life.

When I first heard of President Trump’s litmus test for immigrants who don’t speak English, I was shell shocked.

It took me back to the first day of middle school, feeling alone.

Please, Lucas -- take a stand against this hateful policy and tell Trump you refuse to let him turn his back on immigrants like me.

I didn’t let the fact that I couldn’t speak the same language as my peers stop me.

I learned English, graduated high school, went to college, and now I am fulfilling my passion of working in Democratic politics.

My story is shared by so many hardworking immigrants across the country.

Trump’s new anti-immigrant policies are un-American and go against the values that make this country exceptional.

I am a proud DREAMer, proud immigrant, but most importantly, I am a proud American.

As Americans, we need to stand up for hardworking DREAMers and for the values we all share.

Immigrants make our country better -- and if you agree, sign your name next to mine and demand Trump back down from this bigoted and hateful legislation.

Thank you,

Javier Gamboa
