Erin Burnett OutFront -

Two sisters in Miami are facing possible deportation tonight after the Department of Homeland Security wants their case thrown out of court.
Daniela and Dayana Pelaez came to the United States as toddlers and have been living in America ever since.

Daniela became the face of the Dream Act  in March when the high school valedictorian was almost deported back to her native Columbia. Florida Senator Marco Rubio intervened on her behalf, and President Barack Obama announced he wouldn’t deport high school graduates who are in the country illegally.

Both Daniela and her sister earned a two-year reprieve from deportation but  the Department of Homeland Security now wants their appeal to stay in the country thrown out.

Daniela Pelaez, her attorney Nera Shefer and Fmr. President, American Immigration Lawyers Association David Leopold are OutFront.
