immigration discussions.
Rescheduled for Tuesday, February 19th @ 7 PM.
Catalina Morales Bahena was raised in Waukegan, IL. Catalina immigrated to the United States from Cuernavaca, Morelos, Mexico with her parents and two older sisters. Catalina has live in the United States since 1993 and was undocumented until she was granted DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) status in 2013.
