Helping An Undocumented Immigrant In Your Life: What Can You Do Without Getting Into Trouble Yourself?

If you’ve encountered a person in your life you believe to be kind and worthy of your friendship, but they happen to be an undocumented immigrant, you probably feel like you’re between a rock and a hard place. You want to extend yourself as a friend, but that may include helping someone who is deemed as a criminal, which, in turn, technically makes you a criminal. While most people don’t want to commit a crime, nor do they advocate it for others, it’s human nature to want to help a friend and despite the legal and political landmine that the immigration issue has become, you can act in your friend’s best interest without sacrificing yourself.
