In this clip viewers meet Isabel. Isabel has learned to live with fear. That is what she must do to remain with her family. She came to the U.S. at the age of 13. Today, she is 29. Her whole family — including her daughter — is documented, but she is not. She has considered returning to Mexico, but her life and her world is here. She does not know her birth country well enough to survive there.
Under current laws she has no option for becoming documented. At this time, even applying for residency would bring a penalty of 10 years in Mexico for having entered illegally. So Isabel waits for the laws to change and prays that she is not unmasked in the interim. Video created by Eileen Mignoni. Used with Permission.
