The day Carlos graduated from high school, President Obama signed an Executive Order creating DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals). This change allowed Carlos and thousands of other Dreamers to get their drivers licenses, enroll in higher education, and legally obtain jobs. Carlos called it "the best graduation gift" he could ever ask for.
Ambitious and hard-working, Carlos excels at connecting District 4 residents with the services they need. Outside of work, Carlos is pursuing a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communications.
I'm proud of Carlos but I'm also afraid for his future. Carlos is just as American as I am. He belongs here with his family and friends, just as much as I do.
