In 2013 Lizbeth left the country briefly, traveled to Mexico as part of the Bring Them Home campaign, and returned with eight other youth. The “Dream 9,” as they came to be known, demanded to be allowed to return home to their families and called for immediate family reunification. Lizbeth was able to returned home just in time to attend Santa Clara University School of Law, from where she graduated this past May.
Since Lizbeth applied for DACA in October 2015, USCIS has sent Lizbeth two letters of intent to deny due to her participation in the Bring Them Home campaign. Lizbeth has received the support of several members of Congress, the Dean of Santa Clara Law, law professors, organizations, and community members.
