Bio
Dulce Garcia grew up in Logan Heights, a community that is predominately Mexican and Mexican-American. Dulce was homeless for a time as a child. She is undocumented and found it impossible to find financial aid after high school. So, she attended San Diego City College at night and on Saturdays, and worked as a paralegal in a law office during the day. And, she often times held other jobs including waitressing, parking cars, tutoring, selling flowers and retail. She paid her way through school, and subsequently transferred to UCSD where she received her bachelor's degree in Political Science. She attended law school at Cleveland Marshall College of Law where she received her Jurisprudence Doctorate with a concentration in Civil Litigation. Dulce opened her private practice in 2016 and provided in the first year over 100 free consultations and over 20 forums to inform the community of their rights. She also volunteers to represent low income clients in court. Dulce serves in the 2018 Border Angels Board of Directors. In 2017, Dulce and other DACA recipients formed San Diego Border Dreamers to advocate for more humane immigration laws and policies. Dulce is also one of the named plaintiffs in the lawsuit against Trump and the administration filed after the termination of DACA.
