Julian Castro announces relaunch of ‘Adios Trump!’ shirts to raise money for young immigrants
Former secretary of Housing and Urban Development Julián Castro announced the re-launch of his “Adios Trump!” shirts to raise money for young immigrants just after Joe Biden was projected to win the 2020 presidential election.
“Joe and Kamala have defeated Donald Trump!” Castro tweeted on Saturday.
“Since so many of you asked…We’re re-launching our ‘Adiós Trump’ T-shirt to help you celebrate this historic moment in style! All proceeds will benefit @UNITEDWEDREAM’s DACA Renewal Fund.”

Proceeds from the shirts will help young immigrants trying to remain in the country reapply for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, NBC News reported.
Castro, a former Democratic contender for the 2020 presidential nomination, repeatedly said on the campaign trail that he looked forward to the day when the new president escorts the old one out, according to the news outlet.
He adopted “Adiós Trump” as his campaign slogan.
The Trump administration tried to repeal the Obama-era DACA program, but the Supreme Court reversed the move in June saying it was ended improperly. The White House later announced that it would conduct a review of the program to ensure that legal justifications for rescinding DACA comply with the Administration Procedures Act.
After the Supreme Court ruling, Biden vowed to make the DACA program permanent on “day one” should he be elected president.
Biden won the presidential election late Saturday morning after he was projected to win Pennsylvania, giving him the 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency.
Votes are still being counted in Pennsylvania, Arizona, Nevada and Georgia, and Biden is currently leading in all four states.
Vote counting is also underway in North Carolina and Alaska, where Trump is currently leading.
