"We are hoping the plan is that we are pushing for a clean DREAM ACT and this is the time for Congress to act now," said Cesiah Guadarramara.
Guadarramara came to the U.S. as a child. She said her permit is only good for one more year. While she waits to see if Congress makes changes that would allow her to stay in the U.S. and go to law school, going back to Mexico wouldn't be easy.
"I went to school here, my family, my career, the future plans that I have, I envisioned them in this country and going back to Mexico would mean to relearn everything in a new country," Guadarramara said.
