  • My Story

    | Anonymous

    In July of 2000 was brought by my parents to the United States. At first we had visitor visas but six months later we had overstayed, so we were undocumented.

    My parents sought to change our status by obtaining sponsorship through a job offer and for a while it seemed like things were going to work out. I was 14 years old by then, and as a year…

  • America - The Melting Pot

  • Migrants

    | Anonymous

    I am Irish through and through but I've never been to Ireland. I HAVE gone to the US Mexico border several times a year to volunteer with No More Deaths and Borderlinks, providing supplies, footcare and advocacy. The migrants are human beings.
