"My definition of dreamer is someone that thinks big and believes anything is possible," Gomez began her emotional post. "The wonderful people being threatened by the unfortunate reversal of DACA are exactly that. Please call the White House, your local member of Congress and state Senators to let your voice be heard to defend DACA!"
Earlier this week, President Donald Trump revealed his decision to end the DACA program, with Attorney General Jeff Sessions announcing that the policy would be "rescinded" in six months.
Many stars and public figures spoke out about the "cruel and misguided" decision, with many suggesting ways for people to help the more than 800,000 people who will be negatively impacted by the decision.
"Sometimes it's incredibly difficult to wake up every day knowing there is so much going on in the world. At times I feel selfish, I ask why, I ask how can this change? Will it actually ever change?" Gomez wrote on social media on Thursday. "I try to contribute my heart before anything because it can be so easy to lose the desire to have hope when sometimes all I want to be is angry. When I read about the beautiful women who wake up consciously every day to make a change, it inspires me to want to do so much more."
