We cannot have a meaningful conversation on immigration (or deportation) without understanding the full situation—not simply the rhetoric of “they’re illegal, and not supposed to be here.”
Sonia Nazario, LA times columnist, wrote a Pulitzer prize-winning column in 2002 titled “Enrique’s Journey,” which was later turned into a book. These pieces completely changed my mind on immigration, because for the first time I experienced it from the perspective of one of the children traveling from Honduras.
