A Better Life

by Joseph McKeown

"Immigration reform has been an ongoing political issue at the federal level for years, and people often forget about the real people behind the headlines. Although not everyone supports DACA, we hope that the country is ready to hear from us and learn about the push-and-pull factors that cause families to emigrate from their home countries.  In Mexico, we lived in a house with 14 people, and we often had very little to eat. Our parents wanted us to have a better life and education."
