Overview of issue of immigration and migration in the global era, including the issues of borders, the internationalization of labor, and undocumented migration. Undocujoy explores the various ways that this country has failed to accurately represent and support the undocumented and immigrant experience. Speaker and poet Yosimar Reyes (who is undocumented himself), takes a critical look at how narratives of undocumented people are often edited and molded to create a moral crisis. His unique approach of allowing this community to exist beyond the “gloom-and-doom” stories of deportation, challenges us all to become more effective allies in advocating for undocumented people.
