“'I remember, I was here in the lab when I was watching the news about DACA. I cried,” she says. “I was here with the heart, so that was very emotional. To see that I could actually do this, that it would allow me to continue to work here.”
DACA allowed Aguilar to get a temporary work permit. She has to renew it every two years, but has no path to permanent legal status. Without that, she can’t apply for a lot of government grants and fellowships. She also can’t travel to visit the scientists she’s collaborated with in Brazil, Spain and Argentina.
“When you don’t have papers, you are very limited. But science just doesn’t have borders. That’s very impressive to me. They don’t exist because that would limit the advancement of technologies and how much progress we’re making in the field,” Aguilar says."
