As a "Dreamer," Eric Reyes doesn't feel as if he's alone because of the support he's received. It comes from groups ranging from young teens to older adults, he said, and is "a great feeling that people don't despise me or don't feel threatened by us. They support the cause, for us being here and fighting for legalization and our right to be here."

"Dreamers" were brought to the United States as children without documentation and were afforded temporary protection under the DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) program, which now is facing elimination unless Congress acts.
