DREAMer Wakes Up in Video

October 24, 2013

A new video of the world-wide hit “Wake Me Up,” by Swedish DJ Avicii and Aloe Blacc, features DREAMer Hareth Andrade-Ayala, who arrived in America when her father Mario came to the United States in 2004 seeking a brighter future for his family.

But now after nearly a decade of hard work supporting his family, including Andrade-Ayala and two other younger sisters, her father faces deportation. Andrade-Ayala, 20 years old, told her family’s story at the 2013 AFL-CIO Convention.
