Univision National Network’s Jorge Ramos in Conversation with Three DREAMers Who Fought the President and Won

October 20, 2021 12:15 PM - 1:30 PM
The Road Ahead in Immigration Law: What Can the President Do?
Session 1

Jorge Ramos, Univision National Network Anchor and one of the nation’s leading voices on immigration, will launch CILP’s conference with a live interview of three leaders of the immigrants’ rights movement: Erika Andiola, Chief Advocacy Officer of RAICES Texas; Cristina Jiménez Moreta, Managing Director of United We Dream; and Lorella Praeli, Co-President of the Center for Community Change. As undocumented youth a decade ago, Erika, Cristina, and Lorella each played a crucial role in the advocacy that contributed to DACA, the most significant advance for the rights of undocumented immigrants in a generation. Erika, Cristina, and Lorella have particular insight into the present political moment because each of them was told time and time again that the President did not have the power to create what became DACA. Their persistent advocacy changed the course of history. Jorge will engage these three powerful advocates in a reflective, personal conversation about what they have learned from their time in the movement, and how they see the path forward.
