Migrant Youth: November 2010 Archives



I'm going to confess something I probably shouldn't in the lead of this post: I'm burn out.  I've been fighting for migrant rights ever since I almost gave my life for this fight five years ago, I've been fighting for migrant youth exclusively for almost three years, now, and for the last six months I've been putting more than every resource I have, mental and physical, into trying to pass the DREAM Act through my efforts in Maine.  I'm not even undocumented, and I can't even begin to imagine how the undocumented youth I fight alongside are able to do all this. 

After all of this fighting, I recently had the privilege of living through what will always be one of the greatest moments of my life.
