Villapando said: “Well, under this plan, I only get to be here for three
years without being deported, and I can apply for a work permit. But that
doesn’t put me on the path to legal permanent residence and then the path
to citizenship.

“This is just temporary relief, not really a change in my immigrant status …

“So, what we are going to do is to continue fighting, not only to keep what
we have right now — which is very little, but it’s a step — but also to
expand it.”

Josefina added: “[Obama] said he is going to ramp up more enforcement for
those who do not qualify for this. So that puts many in even more danger
than before.”
