"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.
