"We were disappointed that we did not have that opportunity to ask him about the mass deportations. We were supposed to -- all indications said that -- and Huffington Post had also reported that the President was going to be taking questions. So we had prepared some questions, and I had one in particular that I had an urgency to ask President Obama in regards to the deportations. But that just did not happen."

Undaunted, Guzman quickly added that...

"...it's something that we will most definitely continue to fight for. If we're not going to have the chance to ask the President about it, then we're going to do so through direct actions so, that he's very well aware of the suffering that's going on in our communities."

Leading up to the last presidential election, the Dreamers engaged in civil disobedience, risking arrest and deportation. Their actions included sitting in at various Obama campaign headquarters around the country to make themselves heard.

Says NDLON's Pablo Alvarado: "Either Obama's legacy is going to be that of the president who has deported more people in the history of the country -- or the president who came out, defied everyone, and said -- 'I'm not going to continue deporting people.' He can do that right now!"
