Undocumented and unafraid

I know that out there many people are looking for the same thing as I am. We are not alone; we stand together as a big crowd. (Reyna Martinez, 19, who has lived in the United States since she was 7 )

The Deportation Deferral Programme launched by the Obama’s administration with an high profile speech in the White House garden on 15th June has given thousands of young people who have spent most of their childhood in the US hope in a future without fear of deportation. Information sessions organised by migrants’ rights groups are attracting thousands of young migrants preparing their application forms for the DDP. Below two articles on the programme by the New York Times.
