However, the only crime I have committed is to fight for the opportunity to finally have a home with the acceptance of others.

DACA: House Members Have Made a Selfish Decision That Harms Everyone

Ultimately without DACA I would not be able to provide for my family and thus my parents would not have a home, I would not be able to travel more freely within the U.S. for my job and I would not have been able to think about savings and building wealth for my future. Without DACA I would not have thought about the possibility of traveling abroad, and quite frankly I would not be fighting alongside my community because I would have had to drop everything to work and survive alongside my family.
