We met Cristian through friends in common in a bar, one drunken night. After many beers and a long conversation, I was amazed by his story so I asked him for an audio interview to share with all of you.

He was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina and due to a family crisis, he moved with his mom to Los Angeles, California to start a new life. He was 5 years old.

They have lived there illegally for more than 20 years. The whole fear of deportation hit him when he turned 16. This is his story.

    I’d love to hear more about Christian’s life as an undocumented person. This is fascinating.
