Migrants used to go primarily to just six states in the U.S., but in recent years, they have fanned out to all parts of the country, and Nebraska has become a prime destination. Today, 3 percent of all Nebraskans are undocumented immigrants. So who are these new neighbors? In many instances, they are women — single mothers — who have come from Mexico and Central America and left their children behind. As part of Metropolitan Community College’s 8th annual Diversity Matters Film and Lecture Series, Sonia Nazario, author of “Enrique’s Journey” discusses why these women migrate and the dangerous modern-day odyssey their children go on in search of them after not seeing their mothers for many years.
