Low-Profile Illegal Alien Endorses Donald Trump

by Jesús Iñiguez The last several days have seen a flurry of high profile undocumented activists drawing lines in the sand as to which Democrat contender will be the one to get the DREAMer backing in the upcoming presidential election. Prominent DREAMers from both the Clinton and Sanders camps have sniped at each other via […]

Masochists Read The Comments And Laugh

Over the years, I’ve grown a thick skin when reading through articles about many progressive topics, mainly undocumented issues. I’ve come to understand that there are many folks out there whose hatred for others is so deeply-rooted, they’ve taken to trolling the comments sections of these articles and blog posts to release all those pent-up […]

On Apologies

Gaby Pacheco got me thinking about apologies. Her piece, published last Friday (“In God We Trust On Immigration Reform”) got the wheels in my brain turning over the last few days, and I found myself going through all five stages of grief and loss, a reaction that I honestly did not expect to undergo. It […]

E.S.L. – Dreams

I’ve been listenin’ to hella Panamanian records lately. This is an entire Hermanos Duncan production, straight from a record I found (with a clip of The Mozambiques at the end… fucking HEATER track). That groove. What? How can one NOT feel swayed by that sound? This song is kinda… a testament and a reminder of […]

“I Wanna Be A Citizen” (music video)

This was a fun video shoot. First and foremost, Krsna and Beto got raps. Raps for days. And Ju? WOO!! Who fucking knew? Second: I’ve never heard the original song. Guess I’m pretty out of touch with what’s happening out in the music world. When I first heard this parody joint, I thought it was […]

Undocumented and Awkward: Episode 13

A little over a month ago, Julio and I were conducting a small presentation to a group of students about building a narrative, creating media, and addressing intersectionalities in our experiences. Inevitably, a young lady raised her hand and asked shyly, “Why are there no women in your videos?” It’s a question that we, within […]

Hey Girl

It all started with the photo above, which I uploaded to my Facebook page.  Shot on my mac in photobooth. Nothing special. Just shining the pearls for the camera as I go about my daily routine at work. I uploaded the original photo in its original mirror-imaged format with everything flipped horizontally. And then, Miss […]

On Heartbreak, Transition, and Something That My Pops Told Me

The flight back to Los Angeles was heavy. I’d been sleep deprived for a few days, not being able to get more than a couple hours of sleep each night. Not that I wasn’t trying; I’d been desperately trying to get some rest. But my mind had been on overdrive, and shutting those thoughts down […]
