In the Country We Love

release date: May 30, 2017
In the Country We Love
The star of Orange is the New Black and Jane the Virgin presents her personal story of the real plight of undocumented immigrants in this country Diane Guerrero, the television actress from the megahit Orange is the New Black and Jane the Virgin, was just fourteen years old on the day her parents were detained and deported while she was at school. Born in the U.S., Guerrero was able to remain in the country and continue her education, depending on the kindness of family friends who took her in and helped her build a life and a successful acting career for herself, without the support system of her family. In the Country We Love is a moving, heartbreaking story of one woman's extraordinary resilience in the face of the nightmarish struggles of undocumented residents in this country. There are over 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the US, many of whom have citizen children, whose lives here are just as precarious, and whose stories haven't been told. Written with bestselling author Michelle Burford, this memoir is a tale of personal triumph that also casts a much-needed light on the fears that haunt the daily existence of families likes the author's and on a system that fails them over and over.

En el país que amamos
La estrella de Orange is the New Black y de Jane the Virgin presenta su historia personal acerca de la grave situación en que se encuentran los inmigrantes indocumentados en este país. Diane Guerrero, la actriz de televisión del popular programa Orange is the New Black y de Jane the Virgin, contaba con sólo catorce años cuando un día sus padres y su hermano fueron arrestados y deportados mientras ella estaba en la escuela. Como había nacido en Estados Unidos, Guerrero pudo permanecer en el país y seguir estudiando gracias a la bondad de amigos de la familia, quienes se hicieron cargo de ella y la ayudaron a construir su propio camino y a que se convirtiera en una exitosa actriz de carrera sin tener la red de apoyo de su familia. En el país que amamos es una historia conmovedora y dolorosa sobre la resistencia extraordinaria de una mujer ante las aterradoras luchas que enfrentan los residentes indocumentados de este país. Hay más 11 millones de inmigrantes indocumentados viviendo en Estados Unidos, muchos de los cuales tienen hijos con ciudadanía estadounidense, pero cuya permanencia en este país es tan frágil como la de sus padres y cuyas historias no han sido contadas. Escrita en conjunto con Michelle Burford, esta autobiografía es una historia de triunfo personal que, además, arroja una muy necesaria luz sobre los miedos que permean la vida diaria de familias como la de la autora y sobre un sistema que les falla una y otra vez.
