If I have a message for DREAMers, it is do not pin your hopes on assholes in suits and pant suits.
You might not be able to get a job, BUT there is nothing stopping you from creating your own.
Everyday, hundreds of thousands of folks of "undocumented" or "illegal" status get up and hustle for themselves.
With their TINs and insurance they are running businesses all across the country.
And there is nothing stopping you from doing the same.
As a matter of a fact you might find that more rewarding than trying to find a job.
These days a job is no more secure than running your own business...unless, of course, you are a government employee.
You are doing yourself a huge disservice if you embrace everything about the heritage your parents gave you except their sense of risk-taking.
