Powerful confessions from undocumented immigrants
As more and more people, including presidential candidate Donald Trump, publicly condemn undocumented immigrants as a dangerous "other," many undocumented immigrants in the United States are living in fear of judgment and deportation.
As Trump advocates for the forced removal of millions of people without documentation, he suggests that these individuals are violent, invasive, and immoral. Meanwhile, many undocumented immigrants make up families, schools, and thriving communities. Many didn't choose their situations and desperately seek acceptance in the place that they've always considered home.
Several hard-working people dislike the idea of undocumented immigrants making them feel cheated or gypped. Thus, these immigrants have acquired a negative stigma that many of them desperately attempt to shrug.
