Being Illegal


Being illegal for Panchito made him feel scared of the Migra. To begin with, Panchito and his family felt like they were unsafe in California. Panchito and his family were always scared of getting deported back to México because they had a bad time when they lived there. Next Panchito’s family always told Panchito and Roberto to lie about their place of birth. They did that so nobody could figure out that they were immigrants. If they knew that Panchito’s family wasn’t from here, they could have called the Migra and then the Migra would deport them back to México. In conclusion, it was hard for Panchito and his family, because they were illegal.
