Synopsis

New American Girls’ is a web series produced for Latino Public Broadcasting and PBS.org profiling three “DREAMers” — three of the estimated 1.8 million young adults brought to the USA as children by undocumented parents who remain stuck in limbo, without a pathway to citizenship. Many grew up living “in the shadows,” unable to get college aid, drive or work legally, and afraid of deportation. The subjects of this series — Lorella, Mandeep, and Kassandra — are three of the thousands of DREAMers who decided to come forward with their stories.
