El Colegio de la Frontera Norte (COLEF) features an interview with Prof. Armando Vazquez-Ramos on this summer's California-Mexico Dreamers Study Abroad Program and Conference, which will take place at the COLEF's main campus in Tijuana from August 1st through 21st, 2017.
Also, the California-Mexico Studies Center (CMSC) is pleased to share the great news that as of today, 20 of the 34 Dreamers participating in our Summer 2017 California-Mexico Dreamers Study Abroad Program have been approved for Advance Parole Travel Authorization by USCIS.
This is specially great news given that this is the first time the CMSC will be taking a new group of Dreamers to study in Mexico under the Trump Administration.
Also, keep in mind that the CMSC is currently accepting applications for our CMD Winter 2017 Program, which will take place in Mexico City from Dec. 22, 2017 to Jan. 14, 2018.
Moreover, we invite you to watch Univision Arizona's news report featuring one of our participating CMD Summer 2017 Dreamers, Karina Ruiz, who has not seen her family in Mexico in 18 years: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xfGTBhODQ40
