Abstract/Description

This thesis delves into an issue that is exceptionally controversial and has an effect on every American’s life—immigration in the United States. Throughout this nation there is great polarity in thought when it comes to the current immigration system. What is commonplace is for those that oppose the idea that migrating is a human right (as defined by the United Nations) oftentimes forget that their lives are also the fruit of migration. My paper will pay homage to my Mexican immigrant family by providing narratives of their lives, while at moments shifting to evaluate the politics of today’s system.
