Utah activist (Raymi!) will participate in a national movement that looks for the approval of the DREAM ActPosted by CAD2012
SALT LAKE CITY — When she talks about it, she can’t hide her tears; she knows the agony
of living in fear of losing her family as a result of immigration laws.
An American citizen and member of an immigrant family, Raymi Gutierrez feels the responsibility to speak out and protest for a path to legalize the situation of 2 million students in the United States.
As a child, Gutierrez realized there were some benefits that some members of her family could not have. Her parents constantly reminded her that she would be the first of her siblings to achieve a college education.
“My father was a lawyer in Bolivia, but he cleaned floors in this country. He gave up his profession in order to feed my family,” she said.
