DREAM activists Erika Andiola and Cesar Vargas confronted Rep. Steve King (R-IA) in a restaurant about his opposition to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) memo, which defers deportation of some immigrants who migrated to the United States as children. In the video, Andiola offers King the opportunity to tear up her DACA card.

Last week U.S Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) raided the home of prominent immigrant rights activist Erika Andiola, and took away her mother, Maria, and her brother, Heriberto. Erika and her family had been working in Arizona organizing for immigrant reform in the days leading up to the raid. Erika previously had a leadership role in Presente.org working on their elections campaign.
I spoke with Arturo Carmona, Executive Director of Presente.org, about the arrests.
