Last week, Paramount’s latest television series, 68 Whiskey, introduced viewers to the plight of Sergeant Rosa Alvarez (Cristina Rodlo) whose DACA status is being revoked.

Alvarez - **** - Idea - Kind - Racist
Alvarez: You know, I might as well go back. Because I have no **** idea what kind of racist goddamn country I'm defending by being here. I worked damn hard so I wouldn't have to scrape white people's **** off of toilet seats like my mom. But now, even that's starting to look good.
