Most of us know of undocumented people and their families living among us: we share neighborhoods, we play sports together, our kids go to the same schools.
Since the last Presidential election, the lives of these families have changed in every way imaginable. Now they wake up and go to sleep with the fear of someone being deported – usually a mother or father – and family life torn apart.
Here are some stories of people we know and love. These stories are about real people with fictionalized names who live here in Monterey County. They are the ones who motivate us.
It is because of them that the Immigration Task Force exists and why it stands in defense of the most vulnerable members of our community.
