Ana: A Girl from Gail

Feb 1, 2023

Ana Arellanos was born in Mexico and came to Texas, undocumented, when she was five.

She grew up in Gail, a small town in West Texas.

Now, at age 34, she is a U.S. citizen and an immigration attorney.

She knows the system from both sides.

She wishes the whole country could be more like the tiny town that prepared her for U.S. success.
