"No one will be harmed by extending this deadline", Garaufis said, "especially the 800,000 people who are sweating about whether someone is going to come knocking on their door and send them back to a country that they don't even know and where they don't speak the language".

The average Dreamer is 26 and was brought to the U.S.at age six, typically with no say in the matter.

"I'm here now, and I have a foundation to build on", Rubio said.

"The students feel this, but everyone else feels it too", she told CNS.
