More Memoirs of an Illegal Alien
In a prior post, I referred to an excellent series that is being released ever so slowly on Jamaicans.com -- "Memoirs of an Illegal Alien."
The series makes for compelling reading, and is the only account I have read in any form that described the Jamaican experience in America.
The protagonist is a Jamaican like many that I am sure we all know -- illegally living in the U.S., and barely getting by with purchased social security numbers, close scrapes with the law, living hand to mouth in someone's spare bedroom, odd jobs here and there, etc.
The issues come out every few months or so, and they are quite realistic -- so true to form that I imagine that the author is delaying his posting so that he can stay a few steps ahead of the law!
Here is the link to the entire series, once again.
I had to myself after reading his account of how he snuck back into the US from Bahamas in Series 31 -- is to REALLY worth it?
P.S. Has anyone read any other first hand accounts of Jamaicans living in the US in any form? I welcome the input.
