Doesn't it concern you that the government will now know who you are, where you are, where you work, and more? What happens after 2 years? As a citizen I worry about these things, especially when the country is fascist to the bone.
I think some of us realized a while ago that the more out and open we are about who we are, what we are about, where we live, and what we do, the more safe we are. The Government does not go after well-connected Dreamers, unless they do it mistakenly.
My undocumented friends have tried to get arrested by CBP and been told to come back for breakfast. The moment an undocumented person makes it on the front-cover of a newspaper or magazine, they become undeportable.
The great thing about this country is the freedom we get from being undocumented and unafraid. It is open defiance, because it says we did not do anything wrong and we are done living in the shadows. Pass it on.
