Fuck the following things:
- The fact that one of my sweet students spent two months in jail at 16 for trying to cross the border.
- The fact that he has a work visa, but that this does not allow him to go him to visit his parents or any of his 8 siblings because it doesn’t allow him to reenter the U.S.
- The fact that he’s hoping for a green card, but that he’s not sure he’ll be able to get one.
Immigration reform is on the forefront of my mind. I’m hoping it pans out well because I’m pretty over borders, imprisonment, and deportations.
