Hello, Citizen Orange readers! 

As a Russian Jewish immigrant, I feel a special sympathy for all seekers of the American dream. My immigration experience, however, was very different from that of the majority of immigrants; because of the strength of the American Jewish lobby and the network of Jewish support groups, we were welcomed in 1989 with open arms, given the tools to get ourselves on our feet and naturalized.  Though incredibly grateful for the open door policy towards my family, I am indignant that most (non-white) immigrants instead have the doors slammed in their faces, with racist and discriminatory quotas, no path to legality and citizenship, and deportations. It is this indignation and desire for change that will motivate my writing.  I will probably focus on Mexico and the US-Mexico border, my current home.
