In 2018, then-House Minority Leader Representative Nancy Pelosi, held the House floor for over 8 hours, reading testimonies and advocating for young immigrants.

KRCB’s Adia White spoke with Candela about the ongoing fight over DACA, including the recent Supreme Court decision to temporarily protect the program.
