In the United States there's been cases of undocumented parents deported to their country of origin, while the child remains in the United States. Children who are left behind are placed in foster care if no other family members are willing to take care of the abandoned children. When I was a toddler I learned the words illegal and citizenship. As a child I learned to fully understand the importance of citizenship. This became more than just a mere word, and as I witnessed my uncle, cousins, and older brother?s removal, my thoughts would land on my parents.
As the political tension on immigration increases, my heart is consumed by anxiety as my mind gets clouded with uncertainty. Since the age of 1 I have been diagnosed with fear for 22 years. "Mother, Father, You?re Always on My Mind," is a montage of my personal anxiety and dedication to my parents, along other undocumented families dealing with this stress.
