  • A Lithuanian Immigrant story

    | Anonymous

    I am 84 years old and this is the story of an illegal immigrant, my father.

    At the age of 16 after wandering over Europe working at any job to secure money for passage to North America, my father was able to board a ship to Halifax, Canada. Passage there cost less than passage to Ellis Island.

    | Anonymous

    I came to United States from the Philippines on a tourist visa in 2001 with my family. We really had no plans of migrating but my friend convinced me to give it a try. My first experience on how broken the immigration system is was when I applied for an extension of stay. My lawyer filed it 2 weeks before my visa was to expire.
