"The Day That Changed My Life, Again": The Testimonio of a Latino DACAmented Teacher
Treviño, Luis Enrique Juárez; García, José; Bybee, Eric Ruíz
Urban Review: Issues and Ideas in Public Education, v49 n4 p627-647 Nov 2017
This article, based on the "testimonio" of a Latino DACAmented teacher, underscores the impacts and benefits of immigration policies for individuals and their communities. Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) has benefitted about 750,000 people; most have used the benefits to pursue higher education and to enter public service careers, including teaching and nursing. Mr. Juárez's "testimonio" walks us through his educational trajectory and current role as an educator. This testimonio contributes to current debates and struggles demanding the new U.S. presidential administration to maintain DACA. As researchers, we urge students, educators, policymakers, and the incoming administration to listen to the testimonios of DACA beneficiaries prior to making hasty decisions that will have dire consequences for individuals, families, and the nation, as a whole.
