"One evening this week on the sprawling University of Texas campus, a
small group of DREAMers — the moniker for undocumented college students
lobbying for passage of the DREAM Act — solemnly painted posters for an
upcoming campaign. The statement on each was simple: “I am Joaquin.” It is the title of a famous Chicano-movement poem
of the 1960s. The title character speaks of the minority community’s
battles and perseverance in an Anglo-dominated society. Now, after last
week’s suicide of Joaquin Luna, an illegal immigrant student from
Mission, activists in Texas have adopted the phrase to draw attention to
undocumented students in Texas who are unable to gain employment, even
if they excel in their studies." - Julian Aguilar, Texas Tribune, Dec. 1, 2011.
