Today was particularly powerful. A specific moment that resonated with me was when we met the first colonia family. The daughter was living proof of what motivates LUPE volunteers to continue to promote immigration reform. Listening to her accomplishments and aspirations to obtain higher education was very moving, and the look on her mother’s face was one of strength and pride. It really put into perspective how important it is for future generations to be able to benefit from legislation such as deferred action because in the end the undocumented people are simply reamers striving for a better future.
