Whenever the topic of undocumented immigrants comes up, my mom always tells me it took seven years for her to get her citizenship. Seven years of marriage and three kids, she still wasn’t American enough. Her citizenship is like a badge of honor to her. I can’t say it doesn’t infuriate me too when I hear how long it took before she was recognized as a citizen. But my anger is for the policies, not the people, the policies that tell us we do not belong.
