Undocumented and unafraid: My journey as a DACAmented immigrant

The latest issue of The Mennonite features its central article from our very own Jennifer Hernandez, who discusses her journey as a DACAmented immigrant:

Los Angeles has been home to me for the past 20 years. It is where my family has been reunited. It is where I take afternoon walks along the ocean and watch my favorite sunsets. It is where God’s border-crossing love has been manifested through countless allies—fellow sisters and brothers who have welcomed my immigrant story and have dared to extend their tangible hospitality across my undocumented borders. I am not a U.S. citizen. I am not a permanent resident. I am a DACAmented immigrant, and my story begins in Quetzaltenango, Guatemala.

You can read the entire piece on The Mennonite‘s website here.

If you can get your hands on a copy the May issue of The Mennonite, you can also find articles by other people dear to our PMC family. Frank Scoffield Nellessen has piece entitled “Migrants as missionaries: Now immigrants bear witness to the love made possible by Jesus,” and Sue Park-Hur has an article entitled “What is your 38th parallel?”
