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.
