Undocumented student Yahaira Carrillo won’t be deported; talks to New York Times

It appears, despite her best efforts, undocumented Kansas City resident and Rockhurst University student Yahaira Carrillo won’t be deported after all.

Back in May, Carrillo was arrested for taking part in an immigration protest inside U.S. Sen. John McCain‘s Tuscon office. Carrillo was advocating for the stalled DREAM Act, a law before Congress that would give undocumented immigrants who were younger than 16 when they arrived in the U.S. a path to permanent, legal residency.
