Nine Digits

Nine Digits

Cesar is one of over a million undocumented youth who live in the United States. He is completely integrated into American culture and wants to become a citizen. As a form of protest, Cesar and many other undocumented youth have publicly revealed their status, hoping to shape future legislation that may give them a path to citizenship. While revealing his status could jeopardize his family, Cesar feels like he has no other choice.
