An explanation

So I've noticed a pattern lately on this blog. Where immigration and DREAM Act issues are taking a back seat to posts about me that aren't to relevant. For those of you who read this I apologize for the lack of focus.

The past few weeks have been rough for me, and although I try to deal with in in the way I've always done, by using humor and never being serious, sometimes it just gets out of hand. So lately i've been stressing about the lack of action from politicians and DREAM. I know there are countless people busting their asses to advocate for DREAM but it just gives me so much anxiety to see the apathy that politicians have towards moving forward with any sort of immigration reform.

It's always "next year we promise,oooh wait it's an election year hmm the year after that then". The though of having my future in the hands of these people depresses me and so I decided about 3 weeks ago to limit my exposure to immigration related stuff for a while, just to take a break.

But I realize that may not be the best idea, because word about DREAM, about the undocumented narrative about our daily struggles need to be heard, so that if not for me then for my younger sister there is somehope. I realized the best way to continue with the blog is to combine posts of my life with relevancy to the undocumented experience, along with posts about news, actions and efforts.

I know my anxiety doesnt excuse my lack of effort on the blog, but once again i offer my apologies and proceed with my best foot forward


  1. You don't apologize for anything you haven't done.We are all human and given the bad hand that life has dealt you I think you deserve a break once in a while and focus more when you are refreshed.
    BTW you look better minus the beard.Its always a delight to read your blog.Keep it going.

  2. hey there, somfolnalco, it's been a while since i've been out in the blogosphere. my situation has changed drastically in the past several months, and not thanks to anything having to do with immigration. anyway, i know you already know this, but you are a smart, articulate, and passionate fighter. you are strong. and in the end, no matter what your immigration status (and i'm not trying to down play it, believe me, i know), being strong is the most important. i wish the very best for you, and i'll keep reading your posts (though i may not be posting myself for a while). i am rooting (sp?) for you and all the DREAMERS cien porciento, and if there's anything of substance i can do, please contact me.
