For 57 years up through today’s Dream Act students, I’ve worked as a translator, teacher, health educator with immigrant families. I have a new book with their stories, sometimes mixed with mine. I want to send you a copy and talk about it on radio and TV In one chapter I traded clothes with a Guatemalan grandmother to save her. Then the officer saw me in colorful clothes and asked me “PAPERS!” Scary. I talk of children, mothers, fathers, from Haiti, China, England, how why they come.

Let's Talk

It's time for a new conversation about immigration in America, and it starts with us.
