“College ‘dreamers’ are unrelenting in fight for immigration reform”

This is a article tells the reader how some of the Mason Dreamers has impacted students lives. It talks about how Ana Tobar, Martha Zavala Perez, and Rodrigo Velasquez have changed the lives of other undocumented students through all the challenges of their own undocumented lives. It says about Ana that “One way she has done so is by organizing training sessions to raise campus awareness about the financial and emotional struggles of students without immigration documents, hoping to stir empathy that might translate into action.” Ana just became a United States citizen two years ago, despite that long and rough process she overcame and still helped other students. The article says that Martha couldn’t have made it to the states without DACA which is “Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) is an American immigration policy started by the Obama administration in June 2012 that allows certain immigrants who entered the country as minors to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and eligibility for a work permit.”  It says “While Perez, who holds a master’s degree in communication, would not have gotten through college and found a job in the US without DACA, immigration advocates recognize it is not a perfect solution for children brought to the United States without immigration documents; as an executive order, it can be rescinded easily.” about Martha. The article talks about Rodrigo and how he said ““I’m willing to fight for my community,” he said. “If my community tells me this is something they genuinely want … I’ll listen to them, and I’ll navigate the clash of my values and that legislation. But I will not end my advocacy, and Mason Dreamers won’t end its advocacy until there is comprehensive reform.”” This article will help me explain what the present and past Mason Dreamers do for undocumented students.
