The Legalities of Being - Yosimar Reyes
"There is a trend of folks writing about us, [...] wanting us to come out of the shadows, wanting us to feel empowered. But for some reason I cannot seem to get past the fact that we're still not addressing our emotional well-being, not as undocumented people, but as migrants, displaced people, folks whose hearts have been broken by America's lies."
