Immigration is a complicated issue. But at its heart, immigration is quite simple: It's about people. It's about families and jobs. It's about a better life for today, and for tomorrow. It's the question of, how do you define American?

As Washington prepares to draft and debate an immigration reform bill, undocumented immigrants are documenting themselves- and have been for years. Using Facebook, Youtube, Twitter, Instagram and other tools, they are telling their stories and changing the conversation.
