It’s no secret that Snoop Dogg, who has stood up to the Trump administration before, uses his platform as a successful artist and television host to express his political displeasure. Now he’s standing up for Dreamers.
Snoop Dogg, a very busy man, never passes up an opportunity to stand up for what he believes in. Now he’s speaking out in support of Dreamers, or the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (known as DACA.)
‘We are all Dreamers.’
In the tweet below Snoop links a webpage that directs people who click to call on Congress and voice support for the renewal of the Dream Act. The Dream Act allows young immigrants, who were brought to the United States illegally as children, to be granted not only work permits but given a path towards citizenship.

The linked webpage even provides a script for citizens to use when calling Congress members, that states:
‘The nearly 2 million young immigrants we call Dreamers should not live in fear of being torn from their families and deported from the country they call home. They deserve the chance to earn legal status and citizenship. It’s the right thing to do; it’s the American thing to do.’
Below are a few of the top responses from Twitter users to Snoop’s show of support for Dreamers:
Last year the Trump administration announced that they will end DACA. If Congress does not pass a legislative fix before mid-March hundreds of thousands of Dreamers face the very real risk of being deported to a country they have no memories of.
The DHS (Department of Homeland Security) sent a select group of senators a list of immigration deal priorities for the Trump administration. The document was released by Sen. Dick Durbin‘s office. Inside the seven-page list one of the top priorities is the ridiculously pointless border wall that Trump promised a bunch of hillbillies while on the campaign trail along with stricter rules for unaccompanied minors entering the United States.
The list was handed out, as promised by White House chief of staff John Kelly before holiday recess last month, detailing the Trump administration’s requirements for any immigration deals.
They were somewhat chummy several years ago, and only for the Comedy Central special, but now a days Donald Trump, whose ego has grown proportionally since being elected president, is no longer a fan of the hip hop legend. Funny enough, the feeling is mutual.
Below is Snoop Dogg’s music video for the song “Lavender,” in which it depicts Donald Trump as a clown, who eventually gets shot:
Snoop Dogg has nothing but support from friend and fellow artist Ice Cube, who backed up his friends artistic expression, but Trump, who reacts like a hostile child whenever criticized, didn’t take the video lightly, and even clapped back:
Senator Kamala Harris of California also called for action for the Dream Act on Twitter:
To anybody who thinks that passing the Dream Act is not an emergency: More than 14,000 Dreamers have lost their DACA status. So many of them fear a midnight knock on their door that would tear them away from their families. #DreamActNow
