Some From Zacatecas is the story of the migration and adaptation of an extended family of undocumented immigrants from that Mexican State to the west side of Los Angeles, and how some of them received amnesty after the 1986 Immigration Reform and Control Act and some did not. The book looks at the daily lives and interactions of a group of brothers, their wives, and their cousins. It looks both at the triumphs and the tragedies that some migrant workers face during their journey to the north.
