Arizona Rep. Sinema Hires Prominent DREAM ACTivist

New Arizona Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-CD9) has hired prominent DREAM Act activist Erika Andiola as her new District Outreach Director.  Andiola's home was raided by ICE earlier last week, and her mother and brother were taken into custody for deportation, then released.  Talking Points Memo was first to report the newsworthy hire.

Sinema spokesperson Justin Unga indicates that Andiola was hired earlier the same day (Thursday) as the home raid, and that today was Andiola's first day on the job.
