Enrique Chavira Cantu (he/him) immigrated to the United States at the age of six and became a DACA recipient in 2013. He has been an immigration law paralegal since 2013 and in 2015 gained admission to law school. Unfortunately, given the limited resources available to undocumented folks pursuing post-graduate degrees in Texas, he was forced to withdraw. In recent years, Enrique has worked to ensure the humane treatment of unaccompanied children at government detention facilities. Having seen a lack of representation of undocumented individuals in spaces where decisions are made, Enrique hopes to continue to affect change through impact litigation.
