Take Note: Julissa Arce's (Underground) American Dream

Julissa Arce, author of "My (Underground) American Dream

So what does an undocumented immigrant look like—and how do they get here?  Julissa Arce comes out of the shadows in her new book, My (Underground) American Dream.  In it she describes her journey from an undocumented immigrant to becoming a Wall Street executive, complete with a six-figure salary—and why she gave it all up to become an immigration advocate.  Julissa Arce, thank you so much for joining us.
