  • Not Synced
    Four years after arriving
    in the United States,
  • Not Synced
    like any typical 16-year old,
  • Not Synced
    I went to get my driver's permit.
  • Not Synced
    After I showed the clerk
    my immigration papers, my green card,
  • Not Synced
    she told me it was fake.
  • Not Synced
    "Don't come back here again," she said.
  • Not Synced
    That's how I found out
    I was in America illegally.
  • Not Synced
    And I'm still here illegally.
