Description

A damning confrontation between the American dream and the reality of undocumented children seeking a new life in the US.

Structured around the 40 questions Luiselli translates and asks undocumented Latin American children facing deportation, Tell Me How It Ends (an expansion of her 2016 Freeman's essay of the same name) humanizes these young migrants and highlights the contradiction between the idea of America as a fiction for immigrants and the reality of racism and fear - both here and back home.

educate yourself

full of important information. it's a must read (and share) to open up our eyes on immigration issues that concern us all. it's also great for developing more empathy.

Timely and Important Essay

I found this essay an important one to read to become better informed about the immigration situation. I read it alongside the author's fictionalized version, Lost Children Archive.

One-sided Sympathy Pull

This is a shallow book on the sympathetic arguments aimed at advocating for a loose immigration policy. Written from the perspective of a translator who admittedly changes the translations from the immigrant to the court / lawyers, the book is completely absent in its presentation of the quantity of migrants, the difficulties in assimilating migrants, the constraints of our USA capacity to hold and care for migrants, and so much more. Moreover, its contradictory as the author apparently respects the USA rules as it relates to her own personal legal status but rejects it, or certainly does not support it, as it relates to the path, rules, court procedures, and uncertain status of child, and supposedly other, migrants. The author is clearly an activist who never once tries to solve the problem at its source country, but rather she blames the USA for even the source-country issues leading to the children migrating (specifically, USA drug use, past immigration law reforms, aid). Note to author: We all care about the migrant kids, but there is so much more to the challenge than that. This book would have been more effective if it shared its story inside of a bigger story which has to do with various quantifications on how our culture can integrate other lesser-educated culture(s) while simultaneously maintaining our own identity, educational levels, fairness as it relates to legal migration and more. The story aside, this book is well performed.

Immigration Comes to Life!

The author provides many examples of how complicated our immigration laws are for children.
