Two Pennsylvania Undocumented DREAMers Arrested

Jessica Hyejin Lee and Tania Chairez are DREAMers that were arrested yesterday, March 14th, in Pennsylvania when they performed an act of civil disobedience in protest of the treatment and and 8 month detention of fellow DREAMer, Miguel Orellana Garcia.

There are no words to describe how unbelievably brave these women are. After being in the Arizona border last summer and feeling the real threat of being arrested for humanitarian aid, I know I could never do what they are doing for their community and for other undocumented youth in the country. BRAVE.

Undocumented. Unapologetic. Unafraid.

Please listen to Jessica and Tania tell their stories below.
