María Isabel is relieved.

She tells herself that it is all right, that Jasmín doesn’t really understand what is happening.

María Isabel does not say good-bye to her daughter. She does not hug her.

She gets out of the car and walks briskly into the bus terminal.

She does not look back. She never tells her she is going to the United States.

Rosa Amalia lifts Jasmín onto the hood of her car. As the bus pulls out of the terminal, she tells the girl to say good-bye.

Jasmín waves with both hands and calls out, “Adiós, mami. Adiós, mami. Adiós, mami. Adiós, mami.” (p. 240)

  • “I think she’ll love me when she sees me,” he tells himself. He pictures how their lives together will be. Everyone in Lourdes’s house eats dinner at different hours, whenever they get home from work. His family will eat dinner together. Enrique (p. 224)

  • Murillo’s conclusion: “The parents say: I had to do it. But that’s not enough for these children. All of them feel the resentment.” Special education teacher Marga Rodriguez adds, “This isn’t worth it. In the end, you lose your kids.” But she admits she doesn’t know what it’s like not to have anything to feed your hungry children. (p. 248)

  • Enrique and Lourdes disagree about the impact of this on the United States. Enrique says that were he an American citizen, he would want to curtail illegal immigration. Like most on his paint crew, he explains, he gets paid cash under the table and contributes no taxes on what he earns. (p. 251)

  • Lourdes disagrees. Yes, she says, her daughter was born at a public hospital, and she received welfare for a time. Still, she pays taxes and is entitled to those services. To her, immigrant labor is the engine that helps drive the American economy. Immigrants like herself, she says, work hard at jobs no American wants to do, at least not for minimum wage with no health benefits or paid vacation time. (p. 251)

  • Many Americans understand that being born in the United States, with all the opportunities that entails, is a matter of sheer serendipity. Sonia Nazario(p. 252)

    • It is a refreshing change to read an article on illegal immigration that doesn’t put the blame on the victim; because illegal immigrants are just that: victims. In most cases they were victims in their home country of oppression and discrimination and that is the main reason they left and went to the US.... just to find that they are now victims of an oppressive and biased legal system that doesn´t allow them a clear path to legalization.

    • Social and economic development for poor countries is the key to deal with illegal immigration. When living conditions improve in a country, people have fewer reasons to migrate. It is time for US to address the real factors fueling illegal immigration, establishing regional initiatives for social and economic advancement.

    • Right now we need to create opportunities for unemployed and underemployed U.S. citizens. We must take care of our own first.

    • The truth is that the countries that these illegal immigrants come from do not care that they have left their countries. Instead they reap the reward of millions of dollars sent to these nations by illegals. The United States is a safety valve that helps control these nations’ overpopulation problems, crime, and poverty. We taxpaying citizens are left holding the bag in terms of medical care education and many other services we provide, in addition to the taking of jobs and lowering the wages of poor Americans.

    • I agree totally that the way to curtail illegal immigration is by creating opportunities in poor countries. I, myself, migrated to the United States in 1977 and, although I didn't go through the nightmare that Enrique and his family endured, it was pretty traumatic. One day, I found myself living in a room, eating where I could, and working in a factory twelve hours a day for $80.00 dollars a week. Luckily, I found an angel who married me and put me through college. But my family, who was left behind, was lost in the shuffle. When I went back my sister and my nieces had become teenagers, and forever I feel that I lost that "link" between them and me.

    • I am an illegal immigrant. I came here legally in 2003, and overstayed my VISA. True I felt, and still I do feel, guilty. I had almost nothing for what to come back home (Spain), and many memories and dreams to follow and pursue here. I just wanted to stay here so badly that I started my new life here giving the best from myself. Sadly, to be illegal, put me in the shadow, and barely I could have a 'normal' life (always studying and working), but in a little poverty.

    • For one minute pretend you are poor, uneducated and living in a place where that is most likely never going to change - especially if you are a woman. Now add to that you have a family to feed. What do you do? Let them starve or ignore a man-made border and law and find work to support them? Oh I know some of you think the poor should not have children but it happens for many reasons - culture, religion, lack of education, abuse, no access to birth control etc. The fact remains the law and wall so many of you refer to as hard and firm will never deter someone’s desire to survive.

    • First, thanks to the author for writing this book. I immigrated to Germany and then the United States with my family. For those back in Bosnia, living abroad seems like a fantasy land. As the author points out, there are also negative sides to living abroad including families that are split up and immigrants who feel they belong nowhere. Some immigrants succeed while others can never really adjust to living away from their homeland. As to one reader's comment that illegal immigration is not ok, I would say that things are not as simple as illegal and legal immigration.

    • I do not agree with increasing foreign aid to those countries that send their poor to the U.S. illegally. No one made Maria Isabel pregnant; there is no mention in the story on how Lourdes Pineda got pregnant twice. Instead of increasing foreign aid to Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador, etc. the US should cut foreign aid, and instead give it to those states in the US burdened the most by illegal immigrants. If the US keeps rewarding Latin American countries for shoving their poor to us, there will never be any change in the way these countries will exist; their poor will always be pawned off to the US...

    DEBATE: Agree to Abriendo Caminos, Migrant Education, Region 11, PVUSDdisagree - quotes

    • "There are huge benefits to migration: mothers who go north are able to send money home so their children can eat and go to school." The benefits are to the illegal immigrants, not the local population. Try sending your kid to one of the schools overwhelmed with ESL programs, or hospitals whose emergency rooms are declaring bankruptcy and folding because of the "undocumented immigrants" who use them as a doctor's office and pay nothing.

    • Prejudice against immigrants has not changed since my great-great grandfather walked the streets of Brooklyn looking at the "No Irish Need Apply" signs. And don't forget that the Native Americans were here first. We should all be as kind as we can to each other. There is nothing else.

    • The real "heartache" is not because we are attempting to obstruct further "open borders", it’s because we have systematically destroyed our national integrity and our own middle class, in order to provide more profit for corporations. The answer to our current situation is not to continue to promote this corruption with its collateral damage and misery. The answer is to halt illegal labor completely, to stop this whole process.
