"I am getting this wonderful education. I have a job. I fit in. At the same
time, I feel at any moment that can change. I don't think that most
Americans live with that thought that anything can change [in] just one
minute. My biggest fear is me getting deported or DACA being terminated and
I go back to being here illegally." -"Leticia"
"Leticia," a pseudonym, is now 21. She came to the U.S. from Mexico at the
age of eight. She is just one of the many undocumented young adults we have
met in the course of our research.
