DACA Recipient: ‘We’re the Best that This Country Has to Offer’

‘We’re here to give back, we’re here to contribute’
By Grabien Staff


BAMBA: "Well, what I can say is that I don’t know if a wall will stop people who are fleeing war to get to safety. We don’t talk about the migrant crisis in Libya anymore, but there’s a whole Mediterranean ocean that people are crossing to get to freedom. So, I don’t know. I’m not a politician. You know, I’m not in construction. But what I do know is that I’ve been in the country for 25 years, Or like Jorge Garcia, who just got deported, has been here for 30 years, and I don’t know how long we have to be here, we have to continue to prove that we’re the best that this country has to offer. We’re here to give back. We’re here to contribute. And I don’t know what it’s going to take. But we’re just going to keep fighting. I’m going to keep sharing my story. I’m just going to keep trying to win hearts over of Americans, of 90 percent of the country that believes that DREAMers should have permanent status in America."
