A new website features the photos and narratives of undocumented immigrants who are not protected by the Deferred Action for Parents of Americans and Lawful Permanent Residents (DAPA) program.
“Alfredo Carrera, 34, moved to New Orleans to rebuild after Hurricane Katrina,” reads one caption on TheExcluded.net. “Despite participating in civil disobedience and hunger strikes at the White House, he does not qualify for DAPA.”
The website—which can also be accessed at LosExcluidos.com—features many stories like Carrera’s. The anti-deportation #Not1More campaign debuted the new site yesterday (June 9), in the lead up to the Supreme Court’s upcoming decisions on the executive-ordered DAPA and Deferred Action Program for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programs.
“The photos show you exactly who the administration is talking about when it says that those left out of relief and targeted for deportations are ‘felons not families,’” #Not1More organizer Marisa Franco said in a statement emailed to media outlets. ”They are parents and grandparents. They are workers. They are queer leaders. They belong here as much as anyone else.”
