At least two "DREAMer" aliens say they’ll leave the U.S. if they’re not allowed to stay legally after March 5, when the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) expires.

If Congress doesn’t make a deal to allow them to stay, the Velez sisters will exercise their “choice” to leave the country, CNN Money reports:

“Alex and Daniela Velez have come to peace with the difficult choice they will need to make if Congress doesn't reach a deal for those covered by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program by its March 5 deadline: They will leave the country.

"'Alex and I are both over this [DACA situation],' said Daniela, who is 24 years old. 'If DACA ends, I will leave with Alex. I will close my business, leave work and school.'

The two sisters are actual, legal citizens of both Ecuador and Venezuela and, if they’re not allowed to legally remain in the U.S., they’ll reunite with family in Ecuador:

"Daniela and I will go to Ecuador and start over with my family there," Alex said. "At least we will feel safe with family by our side."
