Belvidere native interns at DC offices for Sen. Durbin

By  | 

BELVIDERE, Ill. (WIFR) -- A Belvidere native is one of nearly 50 students with the opportunity to intern at Sen. Dick Durbin's office in Washington D.C.

Victor Garcia-Estrada returns to the stateline after completing his spring semester in the country's capital.

Politics is no foreign subject to Garcia-Estrada, a DACA recipient who migrated to the U.S. from Mexico when he was two years old. His interest in the field stems from his senior year of high school, where he was co-captain of the varsity debate team.

Garcia-Estrada is a sophomore at Rock Valley College. He also interned for Rep. Cheri Bustos in both her D.C. and Washington offices.
