The Undocumented Americans by Karla Cornejo Villavicencio

Updated: Apr 24, 2020

Brace yourself for the impact this book will have on you. Karla Cornejo Villavicencio gives us raw and unapologetic writing about undocumented individuals in this country. She relays stories of those she built relationships with throughout the years while linking her own experiences of being undocumented. She gives you hard truths and research that will make you angry at the immigration system we have in this country. . . . . At some points, you will feel dread. You’ll ask, “what can be done to fix this?” Well, we can learn from some of the things she has done: . . . . ”Journalists are not allowed to get involved the way I have gotten involved. Journalists, to the best of my knowledge, do not try to change the outcome of their stories as crudely as I do. I send water. I fight with immigration lawyers. I raise money. I make arrangements with supernatural spirits to stop deportations. I try to solve shit the way an immigrant kids try to solve shit for their parent because these people are all my parents, I am their child, If I wasn’t their child- and I was their child- I should be patented and mass-produced and distributed to undocumented immigrants at Walmart.” . . . I learned so much from this book. It’s too good. I hope everyone will take the time to read it. ✨RELEASE 3/24/20 ✨
