Summary
Mexican immigration has become one of the most polarizing issues. Where once Mexicans had a sizable presence in a few select states like California, Texas, Arizona and New York, today the fastest growing populations are in places like North Carolina, Arkansas, Georgia and Tennessee. What motivates people to risk their very lives, and why don't Mexicans just "play by the rules" and enter legally? How do they cope, living in a strange country among people that speak a language they can't understand? And after everything they have gone through, do they see immigration as a blessing, a curse, or something in between? This book allows Mexicans in the U.S. to speak in their own words, giving readers a look into their stories as they struggle to survive in a new and often hostile land--From publisher description
