DREAM Activist's Family Picked Up by Immigration Authorities

Andiola is also one of the more than 100,000 Dreamers to be approved for President Barack Obama's deferred action program, which allows undocumented young people to live in the U.S. without threat of deportation and apply for a work permit. In December, she posted a picture of her newly received Social Security card to Facebook, saying, "the nine digit magic number that has made my life impossible for such a long time has just arrived."

During the ordeal, Andiola posted updates on her Twitter account:

"My mother and my brother were taken from my house today right in front of me and my little brother by #ICE. Is this how it feels? #WTF," she tweeted in the early morning.
