This book addresses an issue whose actuality is recognized by almost the entire spectrum of American society, yet no administration has been able or eager to resolve for decades –illegal immigration. And while the problem remains the bargaining chip for politicians for future negotiations, and the agitated American citizens rage with indignation, millions of unwelcomed aliens have to live in a suspended state. But how long can one wait in stand-by mode, for decades, for a lifetime? Is it wise to rely fully on the prudence of those in power? The Illegals is one Eastern European family’s candid tale of how they stumbled into illegality and how they stumbled back out.
