Have you ever wondered what it’s like to be told your ILLEGAL. Not being able to walk down the street and hear police sirens without chills rushing up your back, thinking your the person the police is looking for. Your so called “lucky”if you have your citizen papers, meaning you're Okay to Stay. You don't have to worry about being forced into your original home outside of the country. Afraid to go out in public knowing at any point you could be DEPORTED, we'd do anything for that word to never face us. Back then all of this was never a problem, but now it's becoming a reality.
