On Monday, the Senate voted 81-18 to reopen the government without providing a resolution to protect Dreamers, undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children, the Washington Post reports.

Thirty-three Democrats, who had previously vowed to stand with young immigrants, joined Republicans to provide the 60 votes needed to advance the bill, trusting in Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) that the Senate would soon make headway on an immigration bill. Dreamers, however, were not as confident, in McConnel or in the political party that had long purported to be on their side.

Amid tears and anger, Latinas took to Twitter to voice their disappointment and rage against Democrats as well as their determination to keep on fighting. Here’s what they had to say:

Many were heartbroken that the party they had always supported threw their community to the wolves.

Others were furious, shaming Democrats for being weak and ineffectual.

Several even declared war.

Some are vowing to vote those Democrats who helped pass the bill out of office.

And others are even announcing they’ll be leaving the party entirely.

Unlike the 33 Democrats who voted for the bill despite claiming they supporter Dreamers, these aren’t empty promises. DACA recipients have already started protesting the resolution, temporarily blocking the entrance to Disneyland and demonstrating in Washington, D.C.

They are mad as hell, and they will fight back — because their lives, futures and dreams literally depend on it.
