    I was brought to this country from Mexico at eight years old with my parents seeking a better life of opportunity for myself and my 3 brothers and sister.

    Having lived in California my entire life, the issue of immigration reform has been a touchy subject for Californians and Americans alike in addressing the illegal immigration that is taking place along the US-Mexico border today. But these “illegals” are not too far from my story of being a first generation immigrant.
