Imagine being thirteen years old, living “the dream” and enjoying your life until your father says, “pack up we are moving to a different country.” Any person would be in shock after hearing someone say that to them against their will, let alone a teenage girl. Gloria Aguilar was told this by her father in the year 1962 that she would be moving to the United States of America from Jalisco, Mexico. She was living a very luxurious, middle class lifestyle with all her family. She had lots of friends and family who loved her. She lived in a fairly nice house and went to a good school. Gloria’s father had obtained a workers permit to work the fields for himself, Gloria, and her older brother. Gloria, her brother, and her father came by car across the border traveling for seven days. When Gloria Aguilar left Jalisco, Mexico in 1962 at the age of thirteen, she was leaving behind a great life, family, and friends. Her expectations were to find “The American Dream” of a better education, become better off financially, and for her experience to be “like heaven”. When Gloria reflects on her journey she believes she has overcame a lot and met her expectation of the American Dream. Gloria was expecting to live a better life than she was living when she arrived to California. She soon came to realize she would not have that option. Gloria had to work the olive trees climbing up and down daily to meet her daily quota. In 1963, there was a letter to Congress which basically stated in order for immigrants to obtain citizenship they must first be looked at for “(1) the skills of the immigrant and their relationship to our needs [United Stated]; (2) the family relationship between immigrants to the person already here” (Kennedy). This helped immigrants who were coming into the United States to make the process faster. For Gloria’s family, it was the fact that they were coming to be farm workers. Gloria spent six to nine months out of the year traveling back and forth to Mexico

Immigration: Liberty and Justice for All
There are many social problems making up our criminal justice system. The significant problem I chose to emphasize on is illegal immigration. Immigration is a major social problem in the criminal justice system because the laws or regulations are always changing, and some people are just not willing to accept change.
