Aracelis Lucero, a former Wall Street executive who was raised in the South Bronx, has rededicated her life to mentoring the thousands of documented and undocumented Mexican children in New York City. Lucero, executive director of Masa-MexEd, says the youngsters live with the constant fear they will be pulled out of school and deported back to Mexico with their parents. She encourages the Mexican community to make their voices heard in Washington, D.C.
