Unafraid, Unapologetic - An Undocumented Anthology
JoelCSati posted a topic in Dream LoungeHello All, My name is Joel Sati, and I am an undocumented student from Kenya. I have been working in the movement for about two years, and I have been inspired by the movement for immigration reform. More importantly, I have been inspired by the many stories that make the fabric of this movement. In that respect, I am looking for prose or poetry from the undocumented community to be part of a blog/manuscript titled Unafraid, Unapologetic: Stories of Undocumented America to be released at a later date. As the title indicates, the focus is on being undocumented and the struggles that come with it. - Submission Guidelines Poetry and ProseProseAll languages accepted (English translations of each work should accompany non-English submissions.)

The Posibility Of An Immigration Reform
Ignacio posted a topic in Dream Act NewsThis is a video I found today, it's in spanish and it's about Marco Rubio sounding very optimistic about a comprehensive immigration reform. I have a feeling that this year they really might pass something big. http://video.latino.msn.com/?mkt=es-us&vid=f60acafc-31f3-41ba-a173-028986e3df65&src=v5:share:sharepermalink:&from=sharepermalink
The Defensive term "illegal Immigrant" is incorrect!
REPutation posted a topic in General Discussions"Calling an immigrant “illegal” before the conclusion of immigration proceedings is like calling a criminal defendant “guilty” before a jury has rendered a verdict." So many people that are unaware of the issues of immigration or that are in opposition of the DREAm ACT and DACA are unkowingly and inaccuratly using the term and offending the very people they describe. Everyone has a different case and reason for being in the USA. And many myths have been rendered to the ignorant mind. What's your thoughts? Opinions? Have your friends ever used the term and you corrected them? Or that "undocumented" residents do pay taxes, and so on?
