|Rosa receives the news of her recognition - and balloons.|
Rosa, everyone's favorite DACA student, one of 800,000 targeted for possible deportation by Trump and the 62,984,825 people who voted for him (Raise your hands Trump voters! Higher! Higher! We can''t see you!) was selected as the IVC Foundation Outstanding Student of the Year. Rosa will be honored along with others at a fancy dinner on March 10 FIVE days Trump's deadline on DACA. Gee, that should be exciting for all sorts of reasons. Hope to see you there. Rosa's parents will be in attendance to see their daughter honored for her many achievements, including her courage representing the 700 DACA students enrolled in the SOCCCD.
Earlier in January, Rosa traveled to Washington D.C. where she met met Senator Kamala Harris, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi and other elected officials, including a pissed off Darrell Issa who told the Dreamers gathered in his office that he wanted to deport all of them and their parents too. He was having a very, very bad day and hours later announced his "retirement."
