According to the Immigration Policy Center, there are approximately 1.8 million DREAMers in the United States, that is, people who were brought  to the United States as children, without documents. Now all grown up, these unbelievably resilient young men and women have become one of the loudest voices in the immigration conversation.

I interviewed three of the most prominent advocates for the DREAMers: Cesar Vargas, co-director of the DREAM Action Coalition and a graduate from CUNY School of Law, Juan Escalante, a DREAMer and student at Florida State University, and Erika Andiola the amazing woman whose name is quickly becoming synonymous with the DREAMer struggle (She's also co-director of the DREAM Action Coalition). 

Caesar,  Juan and Erika were fresh from the Iowa Freedom Summit this past weekend, where Dream Action Coalition had a demonstration. They share their experiences of the Summit, what it means to be treated as strangers in the only land they know, and what makes their strategies so effective in the fight for humane immigration legislation.
