Even though my mom worked very hard to make sure we had everything we needed, for many years we have lived in fear of being deported.
My life changed when Obama announced DACA two years ago, a relief for young immigrants like me. Now the same can happen for my mom with DAPA, a relief for parents. If she gets it, she can live out her dream of starting her own business.
But instead of letting my mom contribute to our state, our Attorney General Pam Bondi is suing Obama’s relief programs!
AG Pam Bondi added Florida’s name to a lawsuit against DAPA and DACA. And last week, a judge in Texas ruled against the President’s programs and my mom.
Why is Pam Bondi, who grew up in the same city we live in, more interested in slamming the doors shut on my mom than giving her a chance to contribute?
