Examined through the lens of Jennifer Carrillo, who immigrated to the United States with her family at the age of 10, this research focuses on the difficult process of immigration and the consequences for those who are unable to become legal residents. This poster also explores the moral responsibility felt by immigrants who have successfully navigated the immigration system to actively try to improve the status of undocumented immigrants in the United States.
