Actress Rosie Perez on AMJoy: “DACA Kids are Terrified, There’s Gonna be a Reckoning”

Actress and activist Rosie Perez delivered a strong warning on MSNBC’s AMJoy about the ICE raids, saying that the “DACA kids are terrified” and that there’s going to be “a reckoning” because President Obama’s legislation to protect them is in jeopardy under the Trump administration.

“They can’t sit down in a classroom and learn properly,” Perez said. Their families aren’t even allowing some of them to go to school.

Perez warned, “People you’d better wake up. It’s going to volcano and when it does, there is going to be a reckoning.”

AMJoy host Joy Ann Reid, Perez and veteran journalist Maria Hinojosa battled right wingnut JD Hayworth, whose white privilege was on full display. He claimed he was once stopped along the southern border and asked for his ID. They were pressing him on whether or not he felt fear of going to prison by being stopped by law enforcement. He said it was “disconcerting.” Um, white privilege and ignorance.
