"I've had DACA since 2012. I've been undocumented since 2001. And I'm 31 years old and I want to have peace of mind and live a normal life." — Ju Hong, Immigrants Rising's Leadership Council Member.
“This program provides training and support to help participants facilitate the application of their current skills, knowledge and experience into the formation of a business." — Iliana Perez
“I grew up thinking that everything you want can only be achieved in the U.S. I thought, ‘this is where my dreams will happen. Why leave?’” — Geidy Portocarrero
“It’s just so heartbreaking knowing that they could have been eligible for this option, but the only thing that is stopping them is the age or not knowing about this earlier." — Jesús Flores Rodríguez
