WATCH: Senator’s Tribute to Fallen DREAMer Joaquin Luna
Have you seen this? Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois paid tribute to Joaquin Luna on the floor of the United States Senate on Dec 6.
Joaquin Luna was a bright high school student who killed himself in Mission Texas last month over fears about his undocumented immigration status.
BNHR will be honoring Luna’s memory at our annual commemoration of International Human Rights Day on December 10.
Sen. Durbin has been a long-time supporter of the federal DREAM Act, which would give undocumented immigrant youth a path to citizenship if they attend school or join the military.
Watch his emotional tribute to Luna below.
