SHPE Advocates for Dreamers
In a January letter to Congressman Will Hurd (R-Tex.) and Congressman Pete Aguilar (D-Cal.), CEO Raquel Tamez wrote "On behalf of the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers (SHPE) and our 10,000 members nationwide, I write in support of the Uniting and Securing America Act (USA Act) which we believe is a strong bipartisan solution that will allow our “DREAMers” to remain in the United States."
