About

Rosseli Guerrero was born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, MX. She came to the U.S. at the age of 5 with her parents.At a young age Rosseli realized how her status would impact her life, and also the misconceptions that came with it. In 2012 though, a huge weight came off her shoulder when she was blessed with DACA. DACA opened many doors for her and gave her the opportunity to apply for a job and get a drivers license. It also gave her the confidence to speak up and talk openly about her immigration status. Now she is the Advocacy Fellow at the ACLU of Idaho. She has been with the organization since 2019, and has gained firsthand experience with grassroots community organizing and legislative advocacy. Her experience as an undocumented/DACAmented person is what lead her to become involved in activism work. That passion helped her lead the Butterfly Migration Project which was a national project focused on putting pressure on Congress to pass immigration reform. She is also a first generation college student working on her degree as a Secondary Education teacher. Rosseli is also a mother, her son is her biggest motivation to fight for immigrant rights and to continue working on creating an inclusive and safe state for all Idahoans.
