Her First Protest, Her First Arrest

While immigration reform is going nowhere on Capitol Hill, activists continue the push for immigration relief. Neidi Dominguez, 25, is one of Southern California's most active immigration organizers. She got involved with the movement after finding out at a young age that she was undocumented. When she graduated from the University of California, Santa Cruz, she completely devoted herself to organizing. In Oct. 2011, Neidi and four other youths protested at the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement Office in downtown LA. "That morning, I woke up really early and then I just remember this walk with my black shirt that says, 'I am undocumented,'" she remembers.
