Lizbeth Mateo at US-Mexico border

In July 2013, Lizbeth Mateo (center) joined other undocumented immigrant activists in attempting to cross the border from Mexico into the US to protest immigration policies. The group referred to themselves as the Dream 9. Mateo was detained in Arizona for 17 day, but soon after, she started law school at the University of Santa Clara in California.
