I have a very brave guest to introduce to you today. She is an undocumented immigrant who made the treacherous journey 20 years ago from her home in Honduras to reunite with her husband in Colorado. For today's purposes my guest will be using an alias to protect her identity. I will be calling her Mary.
Mary is doing an incredibly courageous thing by sharing her story with us. She wants people to know what it's like being an undocumented immigrant in the United States. This interview was hard for her. I could see in her eyes the memories she was reliving. I have the utmost respect for Mary. Eleanor Roosevelt says, "You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you stop to look fear in the face." Mary has done this.
