dc.description.abstractAccording to Passel and Cohn (2008), in 2008, there were 1.5 million undocumented children under the age of 18 living in the United States. California housed 22% of the nation's total undocumented population (Passel & Cohn, 2008). Each year approximately 65,000 undocumented students graduate from United States high schools, and 25,000 of these students graduate from California alone (National Immigration Law Center, 2006). This narrative study explores the meaning of the label "undocumented" as it is experienced by Latino/a undocumented college students in educational settings. Utilizing Critical Race Theory (CRT) and Latino Critical Theory (LatCrit) theoretical frameworks to analyze the participant's testimonies, this study illuminates the multiple forms of subordination that Latino/a undocumented students experience because of their race, language, socioeconomic background, gender, and immigration status.
