It pains me to report that DREAMer Joaquin Luna has tragically taken his own life because of his belief that his undocumented status made the fulfillment of his dream to become an engineer an impossibility
Joaquin left a suicide note specifically referencing his immigration status, and his frustrations that he would not be able to go to college to continue his education so that he could provide a better life for his mother.
I can only hope that this tragedy will be the catalyst for Washington to stop playing a game of political football with the lives of innocent children.
My thoughts are with his family. Rest in peace Joaquin.
