With the deadline for DACA to expire approaching, we visit the story of a woman who was part of the first wave of Dreamer activists. Marie Gonzalez-Deel and her family were outed as undocumented in 2001. After that, she reluctantly became an activist fighting for a pathway to citizenship for young immigrants. Marie’s story is featured in a new book about the Dreamer movement by Laura Wides-Muñoz, titled The Making of a Dream. Plus, we speak with Mexican author Valeria Luiselli about her book-length essay recounting her experience as a translator for Central American unaccompanied minors.
