UPDATE: As of Thursday August 5th, we found out that Marlen was granted deferred action for one year. Thank you for all your signatures and faxes. This is a great victory that we must celebrate, but remember we continue fighting for the DREAM Act. We can’t continue to fight case by case, but we will if we have to. Pass the DREAM Act now!
On Sunday, August 8th, Marlen Moreno, an Arizona DREAMer, will no longer be in this country. She is a wife, married to a legal permanent resident, and a mother to two wonderful U.S. citizen children, Freddy Alan who is 3 and Leobardo, Jr. who is just 10-months old. Marlen aspires to be a pre-school teacher and would be a DREAM Act beneficiary. August 10th is Marlen’s birthday, let us help give her the biggest present ever, the opportunity to not be torn away from her family and the opportunity to accomplish her dreams. 5,000 faxes is the goal.
