The Undocumented Americans

CHARACTERS The Undocumented Americans º PDF, DOC, TXT or eBook Karla Cornejo Villavicencio Í 0 CHARACTERS One of the first undocumented immigrants to graduate from Harvard reveals the hidden lives of her fellow undocumented Americans in this deeply personal and groundbreaking portrait of a nationWriter Karla Cornejo Villavicencio was on DACA when she decided to write about being undocumented for the first time using her own name It was right after the election of 2016 the day she realized the story she'd tried to steer clear of was the only one she wanted to tell So she wrote her immigration lawyer's phone number on her hand in Sharpie and embarked on a trip across the country to tell the stories of her fellow undocumented immigrants and to find the hidden key to her ownLookin. Such an honest and important book that centers the lives of undocumented immigrants in the United States Karla Cornejo Villavicencio names early on in The Undocumented Americans how we often tend to focus on the miracle successes of DREAMers or the wretched trauma that occurs at the border ignoring the humanity of undocumented Americans living in our presence every day With great awareness of her own positionality she travels to New York to meet undocumented workers who participated in the Ground Zero cleanup after 911 to Flint Michigan where she connects with those who struggle without clean water and She displays the wide range of emotions experienced by undocumented Americans in the face of constant threat of deportation the trauma and aftereffects they go through after forceful separation from their families as well as their perseverance and the love that connects them to those they care about The specific moments she shares like a father who could not access chemotherapy for his cancer due to his undocumented status then loses his ability to chew food before passing away or a kid whose classmates say I hope your mom gets sent back to Mexico too after his dad gets deported really pulled at my heartstrings Overall I d highly recommend this book especially for those like me who need to be humbled by and reminded of our privilege so we can be better allies and advocates for undocumented folk Villavicencio is unflinching determined and persuasive in her pursuit for justice and humanity for her undocumented community I loved the rawness of her anger and willingness to name wrongdoing as wrongdoing While I found it a little difficult to follow her own story interspersed among all the other narratives I still felt moved by the complex emotional space she holds for her own family s journey and therefore her own Grateful that she committed to writing this book even amidst the difficult conversations and the pain she went through along the way
