Family Migration Object for Gabriela M.
Gabriela M. Gomez
family migration object I brought into class is an identification card for a
workers union that my mother belonged to in the year 1981 in La Paz, Baja
This city id located in the Baja California
peninsula in Mexico.
This particular labor union was specifically for worker in the hotel industry.
My mother was a chef at a beach front resort named La Concha
for a couple of years. This is an important document to us because it was how
my mother supported us and herself and secondly this were she learned all her
delicious cooking skills My family which includes my mother, my older and
younger brother and, myself; immigrated to Arizona
in 1985.When we immigrated to the U.S. we were very young at this
point I think we really did not know exactly
what was going on. We knew we were moving but where exactly we did not know
nor did we ask. We were just little kids following there mother. At this time
we did not know anything about immigration, borders, cultural differences and
race. Anyway moving right along there are a couple
of reasons why we immigrated to the United States. The major motive
behind the immigration was of course monetary reasons you know better life,
better education along with more opportunities the reasons why the U.S. is
such a desired place to come and live to many people. Another reason for the
move is that all of our family resides in this country, like a lot of hispanic families we are very close to one another. To this
day all of my family has remained in the U.S. and probably will for
generations to come. We have established ourselves here having families,
jobs, houses and getting a higher education. Things
we are thankful for.
