An Illegal Gringa's Path To Citizenship

Picture from Newsweek/Sarah Shatz.

Maria Andreu recently emailed me and ask me to share her story with the readers of Citizen Orange, saying that they would "benefit from this alternative view".  I agree. 

Andreu is one of the few lucky migrants that have navigated a broken U.S. immigration system (she benefited from Reagan's amnesty in 1987).  Growing up she knew no other country except for the U.S., and she's one of the lucky few unauthorized migrant youth to have her U.S. cultural identity come with a U.S. passport. 

She recently published an account of her story in Newsweek

Support the DREAM Act now to help other unauthorized migrant youth like her.
