story three


“I lived 25 years without papers in this country and I felt like I did not exist. They were 25 years of uncertainty, unable to do many things because I did not have a social security. I felt that I was never going to fix my papers but thank god I just got my social security card last year. You don’t know how happy I was the day I got my papers. I felt that now the American dream was possible. Back when I did not have papers my life was the same, every year I had to save four thousand dollars after the harvest was over because I had to support my family during the time that there was not much work. It was like a cycle, every year I had to save my four thousand dollars. Now I don’t worry to much about it because I have more benefits in this country but I’m sad that most of my co-workers do not have the same benefits as me. “- Miguel (1/2)
