Yesterday marked the first day of Deferred Action, which prevents DREAMers from being deported. President Obama signed it after a series of hunger strikes & protests began in his campaign offices. This is what happens when DREAMers stick together; They can achieve anything.
Daniela Pelaez is a high school senior with a GPA of 6.7 (Yes, you read it right) and according to cnn.com, she is top in her class of 823 students.
She and her sister were scheduled to be deported until they were given a 2 year reprieve under prosecutorial discretion because they have not been in any trouble with the law.
