A great speech by Flavia de la Fuente who was a student speaker at the UCLA College of Letters and Science commencement, June 11, 2010. Flavia spoke passionately about undocumented students and why passage of the DreamACT is important.
This courages speech by this young UCLA graduate fills me with Hope, because it embodies so much of what is needed in the contentious illegal immigration debate, which is for more US Citizens to stand up and fight for and defend the rights of undocumented immigrants. The US is nearing close to 2 million undocumented youth population whom have graduated from high school or college. This undocumented population could be great contributors to our society, if only they were provided with a path to legalization, the DreamACT provides such path.
