I am not a DREAMer, but I can feel the hope of those in my community.
Today is a celebration of President Obama's decision to halt deportations for Dreamers all over the nation. For years, activists have been kept on their toes waiting for a decision to be made, and today's turnout has marked a step in the right direction.
Though the decision is only temporary, it brings relief to the undocumented students living in Arizona. This decision only emphasizes our efforts to remove Sheriff Arpaio from office, who has been a major figure in supporting SB1070. Even though deporations have been halted, getting our votes out and going to the polls must continue for the better of our community.
"If this means Jose can become an engineer, Mike can join the Marines, Ruth can become a nurse, Maxima can become a fashion designer, Alicia can become a translator, Jose Luis can be a social worker and everyone else can pursue their dreams, then today was a good day." -Evan
