Cesar Vargas is the first openly undocumented lawyer and for years he’s been traveling all over the U.S., organizing for immigration reform.

The Guatemalan Consulate in McAllen, confirms to Fox News, that among the fatal victims in this big rig trailer is 20-year-old Frank Fuentes, a Guatemalan national, who benefitted from DACA before being deported.
He died while trying to get back to his family in the U.S.
The future of DACA is still uncertain as 10 attorney generals and one governor threatened to file a lawsuit against the federal government if they didn’t put an end to this program by September fifth.
