I don’t think we have any idea what immigrant mothers give up for us. Give up their country, their family, their entire lives to move across the globe to a country that treats them like dirt because they’re not able to properly pronounce a word, just so their children can have a better life, a better education.
Undocumented immigrants are scapegoats. It’s that simple. They’re another scapegoat being used by the failing capitalist system that’s banking on people’s racism and ignorance to keep people from seeing what the real problem is: capitalism.
