Roel DeLaGarza Jr. is a member of the Marine Corps, but a more important title he has would be “dad.” Father to three children – Alexis, 11, Alyssa, 8, and Trey, 3 – the Corpus Christi native has applied the wisdom provided by his own dad to his parenting. Although he’s rarely able to see his father now that he’s in the military and due to his father’s medical condition, he got the chance to spend time with his family thanks to Mission: Care sponsored by Dove Men+Care! We caught up with Roel to talk family, military and the program.

Independent immigration-rights groups, Democratic congressional leadership, the President of the United States and even some conservative leaders all support the DREAM Act. So why is it's passage causing so much controversy? Mainly because it's being used as political fodder by Republican legislators and anti-immigrant groups who are claiming the bill provides amnesty, not equal opportunity, for undocumented young people who were brought here to the U.S. without knowledge of their immigration status.
