As time approaches for my departure date from my family, I cant help but to miss them even when they are right beside me. It’s hard for everyone to understand and comprehend the bond that I have with them but for those few that do, they know my struggles. I am a huge family guy and with the recent birth of my baby nephew Braxton and my two other nephews Jayden and Christopher, I can not help but to accept all of the things I’m going to miss during this year. The thing is though I know why I have to do this. I am repetitively reminded why I am motivated to walk for DREAM Act. Just yesterday, a friend was arrested for driving without a licence. He is now in my county jail awaiting ICE to come pick him up. It’s times like this that I get motivated for the cause. Times like this that my family understands why I have to do this. This isn’t for me, it’s for my fellow DREAMers. I refuse to have another DREAMer deported because of the lack of a fair Immigration System. The system is broken and I will not accept it any longer. I refuse to allow DREAMers to be sent away from their families. Watching families live in fear because they are undocumented is a fear unlike no other that only we can understand. Words cannot describe the feeling undocumented DREAMers feel. I am frustrated with this system and I can not sit back with my hands crossed any longer. I will stand up for what is right and I will make every effort to prevent the deportations of DREAMers across my state and across America.
