ALEX BOERNER/SCRIPPS TREASURE COAST NEWSPAPERS
INDIANTOWN - Manuel Guerra Casas, 27, came to the United States at the age of 16 with the intention of working for a couple of years to save up enough money to go to college and seminary school in Mexico. 10 years later, he is still in the United States, living in Indiantown, and is active in the effort to bring about immigration reform. He learned English and completed high school in 2006 but cannot continue his education because of his legal status. "I'm just a person, a human being who is trying to be a better person every day," says Guerra. He has been in deportation proceedings since 2006.
