Little Dreamers

Nine-year-old Rodrigo Guzman was denied entry back into the United States after a routine visit to Mexico with his family. When his classmates at Jefferson Elementary School in Berkeley heard about Rodrigo’s dilemma, they started an online campaign to allow the family to return. Reporter Andrew Stelzer reports on the fourth-graders’ efforts to petition Congress for Rodrigo’s return, and for a fair and logical federal immigration policy.

Thank you for this well rounded story on an issue that is affecting many communities and families across the country. Those Berkeley students are incredible for trying to make their dream come true for their classmate and Rodrigo’s plea to Congresswoman Lee, brought tears to my eyes.
Good job Mr. Stelzer.
