vol. 22, no. 148, Nov. 13-20, 2008

ON THE COVER: No matter where you stand on the issue of illegal immigration, it cannot be denied that the lives of the undocumented encompass a mix of trepidation and hope. S.B.’s social justice organization PUEBLO recently compiled stories from our immigrant population in In the Shadows of Paradise; this week’s cover story has excerpted passages from that book, starting here. The cover image is of a group of Mexican men and boys who are waiting for a chance to cross the border illegally into the U.S. from Tijuana; photo by Danny Lehman/CORBIS.
