Pathways

Florencia Krochik

For the past 3 years we have followed 5 undocumented families as they pursue a better life in the US than they could have imagined in their home countries.

Sophy & Allen, born in Mexico, crossed the border as orphans and were labor trafficked to NY; Vlad, born in Romania, was brought to America by his mother who couldn’t support him in their home country; Seth, born in the Philippines, immigrated with his family legally until the economy crashed and a family tragedy sent his father back to the Philippines without a way to return; Edgar, born in Mexico, came to the US to reunite with his mother from whom he had been separated for most of his life; and lastly, Rhea, born in Belize and of African descent, pursues her education in America to ensure a better future for her children. Their stories expose the importance of hard work and education as a gateway out of poverty and into possibility.

PATHWAYS paves the way to immigration reform by providing insight into what it is really like to be undocumented in the US and by exposing the problems in the current immigration system.
