with Elias Rosenfeld, a Jewish Dreamer from Venezuela
Elias with Rep. Joe Kennedy
Elias Rosenfeld graduated from Brandeis last year. When he was 6, his family came to the US from Venezuela to escape antisemitic threats and kidnappings. But when Elias turned 12, his mother passed away. Suddenly Elias "fell out of status," finding himself undocumented despite being fully integrated into American society
In 2012 Elias became one of the youngest Dreamers to advocate for DACA,
President Obama's Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program
What's next for DACA and the Dreamers under President Biden?
We'll hear from Elias and dive into the tumultuous topics of refugees, immigration, and America's role as the land of opportunity and a beacon of hope for the oppressed
