BALTIMORE — For the first time since crossing the desert into America when she was seven, Monica Camacho Perez can go to sleep in her Baltimore home tonight, able to breath freely and feel calm.

'I'm not a criminal...I'm not stealing your job," she said.

On the steps of the Supreme Court, Monica learned something today.

"That people want us here"

She doesn't want us to refer her to as a dreamer, that's for her mom and dad.

"They brought me here, thanks for them"

She wants them to come along for her dream ride. Monica has been to all the protests, all the town halls, all the zooms.

But when she heard a 5-4 ruling she realized her dream of becoming a US citizen is still alive.
