Am I supposed to feel bad for this?


Recommended Posts

I have a very different glass ceiling than some of the girls are exhibiting here. For the first time publicly I want to say that Im an undocumented immigrant, said the woman, named Nova, who quickly began to tear up after receiving some applause. I want to say that its been extremely difficult for me to empower myself in America because I came here illegally when I was five. And I came from Split, Croatia, where I was born.

 

 

Its been very hard because I dont have the documentation here: to get a job; to votewhich is essential, obviously, to [get] representation; to buy an apartment; to go to collegeso I couldnt even go to my dream college because of that; to get no financial aid, Nova continued. I want to ask what in your sense of what is essential for immigration reform because girls like meand Im not the only one here, there are 11 million people standing behind me here and I can only imagine how many girls there are.

You don't get these things because you are illegal. What is so hard to understand?

 

You don't get financial aid for gods sake.

 

You get to make a choice to leave and no longer be illegal.
