You may have heard the term "illegal immigrants," but what does that mean? We all wonder how could a person be illegal? Can you imagine undocumented immigrants sneaking across the border in the dark of night walking for hours or hidden in a truck? This does happen! For most undocumented immigrants, fear of being found out and the stress that comes with it is a constant part of their life. For many people achieving the “American Dream” has been the most important thing in their lives. They have left everything they have in their homelands for a new beginning, filled with dreams and hopes a better life. Although the road to immigration reform is undefined, the personal stories of immigrants shared in this book can help shed light on these voices and hopefully, one day, inspire opposing parties towards finding common ground and a much-needed solution.
