Let’s Talk Immigration: Ericka Hernandez

For those without permanent status — whether that be the undocumented or TPS and DACA recipients — things as simple as getting a driver’s license or choosing a career path have always come with their own set of complications. But throughout the past few months, the stress of these complications has intensified.

On this episode of Let’s Talk Immigration, field mobilizer Robbie McAlister chats with Ericka Hernandez, a small business owner and DACA recipient living in South Carolina. Together, they discuss what life looks like for those without permanent status and how the COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated the existing challenges and in some ways, added new ones.
