JUSTICE AND LIBERTY FOR ALL: AN ALL AMERICAN UNDOCUMENTED GIRL1

There are about 11 million #undocumented immigrants from all over the world in the United States of #America. Some might be more #American than undocumented, like 19 year-old Citlalli Bueno, an honor #student at the #Illinois Institute of Technology. Citlalli was brought to this country when she was 2 years old, learned English, studied the #constitution, excelled in her classes and got the “citizen of the month” award various times during elementary school. Ironically, she was not even a legal resident of the States, she was just a #DREAMER. After living in fear for most of her #teenage year, Citlalli now has a permit to #legally live in this country, work and attend #college through the Deferred Action For Childhood Arrivals program that Obama ordered due to pressure from the #DREAMERS and other #activists. However, it can be revoked anytime. The power of the #youth and the #DREAMERS, like Citlalli, has been heard once again when on November 20, 2014, President #Obama issued an #ExecutiveOrder that will benefit about about 5 million undocumented human beings, not only DREAMERS or undocumented youth.  Regardless of the legality that is now ordered, the inconsistency, oppression, and fear does not end. Plus, there are still 6 million people left out of the system.
