President Barack Obama told the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Thursday night he was accompanied to the convention center by two illegal aliens, whom he called “dreamers.”
“I want to give a special thanks to two young men who rode over with me from the White House tonight,” Obama said. “Luis and Victor are CHCI (Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute) interns and fellows. They are also dreamers, living and working in the country they call home, and making it a better place for all of us.
“Their stories are inspiring, and along with the other CHCI fellows, they give me great hope for the future. They make me optimistic about what America’s all about.”
Dreamers are young people who were brought to this country illegally as children.
In June 2012, President Obama, acting on his own, said those who do not present a risk to national security or public safety could request temporary relief from deportation proceedings and apply for work permits. Around 610,000 young people have been accepted into the program.
