My director gave me an informal review after the presidential elections, and let me know he was very happy with my performance. He shared with me all the exciting opportunities that awaited for me, a young professional in a global risk position at my current employer. I began to cry in front of him. I have achieved my dream of working for a Fortune 200 company in my field of study. However, there is a lot of uncertainty in my future. When my director asked me why I was upset, I shared with him my fear that our President-elect does not want me in the United States.
I have Deferred Action, and the President-elect seeks to revoke it. I have worked hard to reach my goals, obtaining a 3.83 GPA in undergrad and a 3.77 GPA in graduate school. As Deferred Action is an executive program, it is simple to undo, and take away my right to work. It may also make me a target for deportation as the government has all my information. This does not solely affect me, but many others who applied to the DACA program in 2012 in good faith. I want to continue contributing to America. Please help me to do so, by contacting your representatives to protect DREAMers and our families.
