"I was born in India, and my parents brought me to the United States when I was four months old in August 2000."
"Over the past 21 years, my parents and I have received love and help from many wonderful people of this country, but our hearts break when we think of my future immigration status."
"Every time I talk to my parents about the future of my life as if it’s the backwards, medieval story of an exile being banished from the land of his belonging, a page is written.
This is my unique story. The story that tells of a boy who lives in one world, but is told that he is from another.."
"I have lived in this country since 2004, when I was 4 years old. I have fleeting memories of my life from before my parents and I shifted to the United States from India.
I had to be an "international student" to continue my education, even though I had lived the past 17 years in this country.
"I moved to a small town in Iowa when I was 11 years old- I had just finished the 5th grade. My family and I had no idea the challenges that were awaiting us.
I truly believe there should be a path to citizenship for children who grew up in America, and hope one day we won’t have to live in constant worry and fear."
