We All Need a "Protective Shell"

As the reporter of todays news article describe it, undocumented students need a “protective shell” that gives them courage and confidence to go on, do what best pleases them. It is nice to see that even with the DREAM Act being turned down, undocumented students are not giving up. Those students see it as a motivation to continue going forward no matter what. Today as I surfed the internet in the look out for a good article for our “In the New!” this article just made me smile and feel a lot better about how many undocumented students are not giving up their dreams even though their dreams were shattered into pieces when the Dream Act was turned down. Not all undocumented students feel unsafe about others knowing their statues in this country or about sharing their personal life-story just like Isabel Castillo, Who feels that the public gives her more protection and a feeling of safety from the immigration authorities. Ms. Castillo sounds like an interesting person and inspiration because of what she has accomplished. She showed up in public-speaking meetings and talked about her statues in this country. This is risky and specially for her, yet she decides to go and speaks up for her and all undocumented youth.
