Castro’s speech discussed family, culture, and community. One point he also addressed was the bad sentiment some people have felt regarding Obama’s immigration policies. Since coming into office, Obama’s administration has deported a record breaking number of immigrants, reaching almost 1.5 million. Thousands of families across the country have suffered from the deportation policy in place.
However, others have found new hope with Obama’s latest policy called Deferred Action or Dream Act. It gives a new opportunity to hundreds of thousands of young people who don’t have immigration status.
