Undocumented immigrant

Alaa Mukahhal speaks to reporters at the ICIRR offices in Chicago today. Mukahhal arrived in the U.S. when she was six in 1993, when her family was fleeing violence in Kuwait after the first Gulf War. Mukahhal's family overstayed the visa and they became undocumented. Last year Mukahhal applied for asylum and is currently in the country with a temporary work permit while her deportation status is being decided.
