Immigration reform is more than just a political hot button topic, it's something that affects millions of people. And these five undocumented immigrants are reminding Twitter trolls that when it comes to mean tweets, everybody hurts.
Inspired by Jimmy Kimmel's "Celebrities Read Mean Tweets" segment, Jose Antonio Vargas' organization Define American gathered a group of young undocumented immigrants from the San Francisco Bay Area to read several mean tweets. But while some were taken aback by what they read, others had some hilarious comebacks to the tone-deaf tweets about non-existent benefits for undocumented students, building a great wall to keep "illegal Mexicans" out and more.
Vargas has long advocated against both media and politicians using the word to describe immigrants. In a 2012 piece for Time magazine, he explained how "the term dehumanizes and marginalizes the people it seeks to describe."
