Summary
Many Mexicans in the US are subjected to rights violations, inequality, and violence--and have profound feelings of being unwanted in the country they call home. These thirteen stories show the diversity of this frequently stereotyped population, as well as their resilience. We meet Jeanette Vizguerra, who came to symbolize the sanctuary movement when she took shelter in a Denver church in February 2017 to avoid deportation. There's Alberto Mendoza, who suffered persecution as a gay man for years and in 2013 founded Honor 41, a national Latina/o LGBTQ organization. You'll encounter Mónica Robles, the undocumented mother of three US citizens who is literally confined to a strip of territory between two checkpoints. And there's Al Labrada, who crossed the border as a child, became a citizen by joining the military, and is now a captain in the Los Angeles Police Department. Dreamers, their allies, and anyone who cares about immigration justice and the experience of Mexicans in the US will be compelled by this rich, inclusive compilation--back cover
