to a broken immigration system, over two million out of the nation’s eleven
million undocumented immigrants who have lived in the United States since
childhood have grown-up to uncertain futures.
Mining the results of a 12-year
study of 150 undocumented young adults in Los Angeles, Professor Gonzales’s
book, Lives in Limbo, sheds light on the disastrous effects immigration
policies have on their coming of age experiences. Much of this changed in 2012
When President Obama announced the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA)
program. To date, more than 750,000 young people now have access to work
authorization, temporary social security numbers, and stays of deportation.
However, as we approach the program’s 5-year mark, many questions remain. What
is the future of DACA beneficiaries under the new presidential administration?
And what will happen to those not included in DACA?
Professor Gonzales, one
of the nation’s leading experts on undocumented immigrant youth and young
adults, will discuss the impact of immigration policy as it relates to these
young people and their families, as well as their social and educational
prospects in our country.

“Directors Tyler Measom and Justin Weinstein turn a standard bio-doc about an extraordinary man into a rumination on the blurred line between trickery and truth.”
- Ariel Teplitsky, Toronto Star
“Absorbing… The film feels like an enchanting magic act with its web of lies, cheats, and reveals. An Honest Liar leaves one doubting the power of so-called-mystics, but it successfully conjures the magic of movies.”
- Patrick Mullen, Point of View Magazine
