Harvard Student Drives Mom from TX to Harvard Commencement to Avoid Immigration Authorities

The Boston Globe has an article on Norma Torres Mendoza, a Kennedy School of Government graduate who drove her mother (who is undocumented) over 2,000 miles from Texas to Massachusetts in order to avoid the risk of being detected by immigration authorities on a domestic flight.  Mendoza is a recipient of DACA. The article reports that she plans to return to Texas to begin a fellowship with Mi Familia Vota, a nonprofit organization that works with the Latino community.
