  • My chronicles as an undocumented part 2

    | Alma Erika

    I’m just sitting here; tears streaming down my face. I have this feeling of sadness, and frustration. All I can think about is; why can't they see I am American? I lost my job 8 months ago; my job was verifying the status of all the employees and I couldn't come up with all the paper work they required so, I quit. Now, I need work, anything will do.…

    | E.F.L.

    America today reminds me of the "melting pot" I learned of in school but never really saw except in big cities. Both of my Grandmother's were from Nova Scotia, Canada. My husband's Dad and Mom were from Poland. They lost the farm that had been in my father-in-law's family for over 200 years. My husband was born in Germany and came to the United States through Ellis Island. I'm…
