Lending Circle for Deferred Action
Before June 15, 2012 I knew what it’s like to live in the shadow of a constant paralyzing fear. The fear that I could lose my home, my friends, and my life as I knew it at any moment. I went out into the world not knowing if I would ever see my home again. I lived with this fear for years, in silence because I didn’t know who I could trust. I thought that I was the only kid who was undocumented. On June 15th 2012, my life has changed dramatically — it’s the day that the Obama Administration implemented Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).
