That is what Juan Carlos Ramos told Ramon Garibaldo after both found out that while Ramos does qualify for President Obama’s new executive amnesty, Garibaldo does not.
Both Ramos and Garibaldo were brought to the United States illegally by their parents when they were minors. Ramos entered the U.S. in 2008, which means that while he did not qualify for the 2007 cutoff date in Obama’s first amnesty (the 2012 Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals), he did qualify under the new amnesty program.
But Garibaldo didn’t enter the U.S. until March of 2010. The eligibility cutoff for Obama’s new amnesty program is January 2010. He missed it by just three months. Hence Ramos’s solace that, “The fight continues.” Both activists have sworn to keep pressuring Democrats in Washington until all 11 million illegal immigrants, including Garibaldo, are granted amnesty. And they just might win.
