Very brave of that reporter. I'd like to tell the stories of my immigrant
families in my book. I've worked with for 57 yrs, stories they've told me,
ones we lived together. One mother showed me her back covered with bullet holes from street violence in Honduras. She won't qualify for executive order because son born there. There's Guatemalan grandmother with whom I traded clothes to save her, couple I met in Haitian slums, later in migrant camp of US, father of slums Eng. on tourist visa. The second he went to work he was undocumented. There are Dream Act students who didn't
know they weren't born here until they were 16. I also want to say how
Reform will help all of us born here. Like that reporter, I've been there.
