Public Affairs - Washington Dream Coalition / OneAmerica

Pedro and Luciana are both originally from Argentina. In September 1999, they decided to come to study broadcasting to the US and then they were lucky to find jobs in radio and great companies like iHeart Media willing to sponsor their visas. 

There are people, however, who perhaps escaping from horrible circumstances in their own countries, either came to the US illegally or overstayed their visas and are now undocumented… 

Some of those undocumented immigrants made their way to the promise land with their families… Children that were not even 16 when they arrived in the US. It basically was not up to these kids to decide where they wanted to live… 

That's the premise for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, also known as DACA. If this doesn't ring a bell, maybe Dreamers Act does. 

We recently did a show about Dreamers and to talk about them, we invited Paul Quiñonez, Political Director at the Washington Dream Coalition, and Roxana Norouzi, Deputy Director for OneAmerica. Listen to their talk right here...
