Immigrants Tell Their Story

GEORGETOWN, Del.- Luisa Pzun went grocery shopping Wednesday in Georgetown.  Even that simple task is often challenging for immigrants like her.

"English is a difficulty for us and we cannot express ourselves or ask for something to buy at the store.  If we want to study, we are denied the opportunity as well," Pzun said.  Luisa came to the United States two years ago by herself, in search of better opportunities.  

Elman Perez has a similar story.  He is busy these days learning English and seeking more opportunity.  "Well I dreamed to continue studying, but unfortunately I didn't have enough money.  So one day I decided to come here as an immigrant," said Elman.

These Guatemalan immigrants attended Wednesday's rally in Georgetown.  They, like other immigrants, simply want a path to citizenship.  

There are many people who believe that citizenship for the millions of undocumented workers isn't necessarily the right thing to do.

Leanne Alvarez does not think it is fair.

"I understand these people are here and I know they want to be legal and all that stuff," she said. "But I have friends that are trying to come into this country legally and they can't get here."

Despite the controversy, Pzun remains hopeful.  "Si se puede."  Yes we can.
