We are glad to highlight DREAM Act activist, Erika Andiola of Arizona as she is mentioned in this story from FOX NEWS LATINO:
Opinion: Dreamers’ Open Letter to Marco Rubio
Written By Erika Andiola & Mayra
We are here. We are in Arizona, a major Latino state and home of next week’s Republican presidential primary. We are in Florida, another major Latino state and home to one of last month’s primaries. We are in large and small cities across America. DREAMers like us are here, working hard to serve our communities, and all we want is an opportunity to continue our work as residents and citizens.
You rarely leave Washington and Florida. You don’t know Latinos in the rest of the country and polls tell us that most Latinos don’t know you. And you don’t support the DREAM Act and other positive immigration policies strongly supported by most Latinos. So what gives you the authority to speak on behalf of Latinos on immigration?
We write to you today on behalf of DREAMers and other Latinos across our nation to ask you to reverse your opposition to the DREAM Act, as well as to reverse your support of Arizona’s SB-1070 racial profiling law and other copy-cat anti-immigrant policies. If you are to be a real national Latino leader, one who is acknowledged and respected by our community, we need you to reject the Tea Party-backed anti-immigration policies, and we need you to show your support for hardworking young immigrants in college through your vote.
