Stuck Between Choices


"At first glance, Evelyn seems like a normal, 16-year-old American girl.  But if you spend a little time with her, as I did recently, you would learn that she is a little smarter and more thoughtful than most people her age. ... Evelyn and her classmates want to dream big, but their dreams are anchored by the weight of their immigration status. Their lives are in limbo. They are stuck between the choices their parents made and the choices lawmakers have yet to make." - Edward Sifuentes, North County Times, May 6, 2012.
