Mishaps and Heartache

By Sarah Huacuja

Jewish Family & Life (JFL Media), April 2007

The author tells her devastating story of her attempts to become an American citizen. She and her family followed the exact immigration protocol as she and her sister immigrated from Mexico. Due to a series of errors committed by the Immigration Naturalization Offices, she remains in limbo, unable to drive, work, join the army, attend the university where she had been accepted, or apply for loans or scholarships, without a Social Security number.
