(Photo: Diego Lozano, Creative Director at Aliento) For its recipients, Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals was more than a piece of plastic. It enabled us to finally live without fear and imagine a future where we could provide for ourselves. Now that it appears that the Democrats have abandoned us once again, we call upon all people of conscience to raise their voices in defense of the Dreamers.
