Update: DreamActivist PA Coming Out Action

Yesterday afternoon Tania Chairez and Jessica Hyejin Lee, two undocumented youth were arrested in front of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) after a civil disobedience action. Earlier today we found out they had a court hearing to decide their future. Luckily a few hours later they were released.  Before their arrest, Tania and Jessica entered the ICE office building and presented a letter to Field Office Director Thomas Becker demanding the release of Miguel Orellana Garcia. Miguel is an undocumented youth who has been detained at York County Jail since July 2011 (and still there), away from his two sons and fiancee.

Watch Tania's story below:
