Selena Gomez, actress and singer, discussed her own family’s history. In the 1970s her aunt crossed the border from Mexico to the United States in the back of a truck. Her grandparents followed and her father was born in Texas. She was born in the United States in 1992 and thanks her family for their bravery and sacrifice. “When I read the news headlines or see debates about immigration rage on social media, I feel afraid for those in similar situations. I feel afraid for my country,” she wrote. Her family’s experience inspired her to executive-produce a new docu-series for Netflix called “Living Undocumented.” She was approached about the project in 2017, Gomez said, and wanted to “shine a light on eight immigrant families in the US from different countries and backgrounds, all facing possible deportation.”
