Dreamers / by Maria Hinojosa | January 20, 2012

Dreamers

The stories of Jose Antonio Vargas and Carlos Alban are like so many who grew up in the United States: undocumented, but managing to start careers. And there are also high school and college students who call themselves Dreamers. They are fighting for the Dream Act, which would a grant a passage to citizenship to students and members of the military. For more than a decade, its been an uphill battle to get votes, and in recent years, these students have upped the ante by coming out, publicly and often putting themselves at risk of deportation. We hear from two Dreamers: Lizbeth Mateo and David Cho.
