The most recent snow storm to hit the Washington, DC, area could not stop Karina Velasco, a 25-year-old DACA recipient, from meeting with her congressional representatives and advocating for administrative relief.
The Latino community will remember that the interests of more than 4 million of its children were sacrificed so a few politicians could pander to extremists. We hope candidates remember this episode in 2016, when they experience a record turnout of Hispanic voters.
Though Maria Garcia has lived in the United States for 20 years, it is only during the past couple that the pursuit of the American dream seemed within reach.
Undocumented immigrant youth have been at the forefront of the Undocumented, Unafraid and Unapologetic Movement. At the inception of this movement, however, were undocumented parents, fighting the hard fight, regardless if anyone was listening.
Yes, President Obama highlighted that his administration would appeal the judge's ruling during a nationally televised immigration town hall last week, but what exactly does that mean for the beneficiaries of the DACA+ and DAPA program in the meantime?
The expansion of DACA and DAPA has brought hope to millions of immigrants and families, including those who were initially unable to apply for DACA because they were over the age of 31.
Mr. Bush, the immigrant community is looking for a leader who will face the issues with a clear plan, not one that will throw stones inside a glass house in hopes of scoring political points. How much longer should the current President wait for your party to pass a bill?
The Republican lawsuit against DACA expansion and DAPA was undoubtedly a bump in the road, but it is not the final word. The law is clear and DAPA/DACA expansion policies are legal, despite what Judge Hanen thinks.
With his last-minute decision, Judge Hanen has blocked nearly 5 million aspiring Americans from getting right with the law, working and paying taxes, and living free from the constant fear of deportation and separation from their families.

It makes little sense for taxpayers to invest in free primary and secondary educations for these young men and women and then deny them the chance to develop their skills. It is an enormous loss of potential talent.
The conventional wisdom is that Judge Hanen will enjoin implementation of the executive actions, perhaps as early as this week. But the conventional wisdom could be way off. In fact, there's a strong chance that Judge Hanen will throw the case out -- if he correctly follows the law. Here's why.
Immigration reform has stalled because of ugly Republican politics and an insistence by the Democrats that it be all or nothing. This has taken a toll on the country's economic growth and global competitiveness. But there may finally be hope to slow the skilled-immigrant exodus that is in progress.
Republican Sen. Cory Gardner took his slippery interview tactics to the national stage of PBS' Newshour yesterday, responding to questions with predi...
All in all, ever since his forceful response to the midterm elections, Obama seems to be getting more and more popular. In absolute numbers, of course, Obama still has a long way to go.
As the film Selma screens nationwide to critical acclaim, police from Clarke County arrested nine students on Friday evening in Athens, Georgia, for organizing the first "integrated classroom" for both undocumented and documented youth at the University of Georgia.
