Tania Hernandez - Define American

Tania Hernandez

Monroe, WA

My parents brought me to WA state from Mexico City at the age of 14. Because of the bracero program my dad was able to obtain legal status for my siblings. I am now a doctor, my sister is a nurse and my brother is a High School counselor. We work in areas of high need, serving low income people, in jobs that most native-born Americans avoid. We are helping make this country great. But we could not have done it without attaining legal status. We must help our DREAMERS if we want this country to continue to grow.
