LA Youth » Immigrant dreams I always knew my parents had come here from Mexico illegally but I didn’t know any of the details. I was busy hanging out with my family and friends, going to school or longing to go to a show for the rockabilly band the Horrorpops. I would cry when I saw the news reports about people drowning in the Rio Grande or dying in the desert while trying to cross the border, but then I would go back to my life. I never gave my parents’ stories much thought until the recent immigration debate. As I heard about the protests and the school walkouts over HR 4437, the bill that would make it a felony to be undocumented, I became curious about how and why my parents had come here. When I was a child, my dad and grandma told me stories about Mexico so I would appreciate my home. But I hardly knew anything about my dad’s childhood. One afternoon, as I relaxed on the bench on our front porch, my dad sat next to me. Growing up in Puebla, Mexico, my dad had a childhood like any other kid.
