Voxxi: Asian & Pacific Islander Dreamers Living Life in Shadows

posted by Randall

 

College CampusFor the first time dreamers can qualify for work permits and avoid deportation, but many Asian and Pacific Islander dreamers still struggle with whether they should reveal their status. Many attend colleges blending in with the general population and afraid to reveal themselves for fear of embarrassing their family. It’s estimated that one out of ten dreamers in the United States are Asian or Pacific Islander. “I remember feeling like there weren’t a lot of us out there, because you don’t see many people who look like us being public about their status,” Anthony Ng told  Voxxi.  Media coverage of undocumented immigration largely focuses on the Hispanic community, leaving some API dreamers feeling alone. Many keep their status a secret due to pressure from their own families.
