I don't remember the night; I was only a year old during my first run-in with immigration. My parents and I got caught in the middle of the desert trying, to cross the border. Ever since I can remember, I've lived with the fear of running into them again. I don't know anything outside of the US. I have family that have been murdered and hacked into pieces by cartels in my native Michoacan. It's one of those things you can try to explain and/or understand but won't really comprehend until you live it.
Narco-violence aside, I have a life here. I have a beautiful family, wife, 2 adorable nieces - a 5 year-old and a newborn. My sister's about to start college. I have a career in tech and I'm an entrepreneur. Again, I don't know anything outside of the US.
I've spent my entire life literally praying for a solution to our broken immigration system. DACA was life-changing legislation that literally allowed me to finally work jobs that were not minimum wage. DACA allowed me to start an actual career. DACA was a great start but did not address the root problem - an equitable path to citizenship - after all, we are a country of immigrants.
With the proposed "Roadmap to Freedom" resolution, I'm hopeful that millions of other DACA, former, and current farmworkers will be allowed to enjoy the fruits of our hard work and loyalty to this country. We don't want or need handouts, we demand dignity and humanity - basic human rights.
