Illegal aliens in Chicago are ecstatic our lawless president has finally done something for them. Just don’t celebrate too much, since he’ll be getting the boot in November.
“I’m a person who always does the right thing,” she said. “I don’t like to break the law.”
Until Friday, Briceno lived in fear of being sent back to Mexico, even though what she knows about her parents’ hometown there, she’s mostly learned from looking at Google Maps images.
In Chicago, Briceno lives with her mother and older brother in an apartment. Briceno hasn’t seen her father, who she described as “abusive,” since she was 4 years old.
Briceno said her mother works multiple jobs to try to support the family, and has been driving a car without a license for 14 years — somehow avoiding arrest.
“I always tell her to drive carefully and make all the stop signs,” Briceno said.
Briceno said she blames her parents, in part, for putting her in a situation where she has no identity, something she would have in Mexico.
But now, at least, she has the opportunity to go to college without fear of being discovered, she said. She plans to study photography at Truman College.
She’s certain Obama’s move is all about politics, but she’s still grateful.
“He finally did something for us,” Briceno said.
