LAS VEGAS (AP) - President Barack Obama is meeting with a Las Vegas woman and other DREAMers in the White House to talk about how the president’s program to defer deporting the children of immigrants who entered the country illegally has affected their lives.

The group DREAM Big Vegas announced that Blanca Gamez, whose family brought her to the United States as an infant, would be meeting with the president Wednesday to talk about the effect of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals.

Gamez has a younger sister who was born in the United States, making their mother eligible for the president’s latest action that would allow temporary residency for parents.

Gamez is a co-founder of DREAM Big Vegas and is pursuing law school after earning two degrees at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
