American Dream

Reyna Garcia's avatar Reyna Garcia

This piece describes one of my major concerns; the future of all of the immigrants who are living and hiding from the system. They are declared as criminals, I saw families suffering from the separation of their relatives. "Deportation" is the word that scares them, and also describes how many students can't continue their education because they weren't born in this country, even though they were raised here. Those students believe in the American dream, but they need our support because they are the future of this country. It is important to express in my art all of those feelings of our community who came to the United States to have a better life for their families. They bring their cultures and traditions to us, they support the economy, and they do the jobs no one else will do. American dream?
