Hey! Welcome to the first episode of Broken English: Firsthand Immigration Stories!
This episode I sit down with a friend of mine who illegally immigrated to the US from Mexico at the age of 12 and has slowly become an official resident. The story is filled with laughter and struggle as Miguel describes an incredible journey from the heart of Mexico all the way to Chicago with his parents.
Being my first episode I learn quite a bit about what it takes the average person to make it across the southern border. I must say, it's not for the faint of heart.
*Warning! This was recorded before Trump was elected so the interview may seem dated as far as the election portion goes.*
Thanks for listening!
