When DACA recipient Raul Sanchez converted to Islam, his mother kicked him out of the house, telling him he was joining a cult and a terrorist organization.
Although they may not fit the image that first pops into your mind, Hispanics like Raul are the fastest growing ethnic group among Muslims. And many in this group have the same experience: rejection by their families. But Raul’s story doesn’t stop there, as he told it to VICE. Over time, as his mother saw him heal from depression and start helping the less fortunate, her view changed. Eventually, she accepted Islam for herself as well.
