Inside the Cover: What Undocumented Workers Really Want

Inside the Cover: What Undocumented Workers Really Want

It’s an awkward and often unacknowledged truth that many immigrants in the United States haven’t gone the citizenship route, illustrating the gulf between the immigrant population and the politicians who are angling for reform. About half of all the immigrants eligible to apply for citizenship don’t bother to do so, citing language and financial barriers and simple lack of interest, according to the Pew Hispanic Center. And for those who are here illegally, becoming a citizen one day might be the furthest thing from their minds. More than a dozen who spoke with National Journal said that they are far more concerned about ending President Obama’s deportations of people without papers.

 

In this week's National Journal, Fawn Johnson takes a look at the immigration debate from inside America's kitchens. In the video above, go inside the story with the author herself.
