We Are Here To Stay: Voices Of Undocumented Adults
Susan Kuklin

We Are Here to Stay features nine courageous young adults who have lived in the United States with a secret for much of their lives: they are not U.S. citizens. They came from Colombia, Mexico, Ghana, Independent Samoa, and Korea. They came seeking education, fleeing violence, and escaping poverty. All have heartbreaking and hopeful stories about leaving their homeland and starting a new life in America. And all are weary of living in the shadows.
