Good episode? Give it some love!
Writer Y.B., who we are identifying by her initials for the safety of her family, immigrated from Morelos, Mexico to New York City with her family over two decades ago. Since then, they've been living in Queens as undocumented immigrants. While Y.B. eventually was able to become a DACA recipient, her mother and uncle are still undocumented. She has since moved out, gone to college and become a writer. But as she's drifted away and created her own independent life, Y.B. has started to become increasingly worried about how little her family has changed. In this intimate story, Y.B. decides to confront her relatives with tough questions about their lack of progress, and how they try to stay afloat in this country.
