“We want to showcase how dreamers are fully-contributing members of our community… the majority of whom were brought before the age of 6 years old. They’ve grown up here, graduated from our schools. Then they reinvest with their hard work and also contribute by volunteering at events such as these,” said Lalo Montoya, a dreamer.

President Trump ended DACA. It officially expires in 2018, leaving nearly 800,000 young adults in legal limbo.
