    • Dear Victor, this a strong and relatable topic to others because there’s people from other countries that come here to the U.S without being able to get housing. They don’t know their surroundings because their whole life they’ve lived somewhere else, and sometimes they don’t have any family around. I agree with your article about it being a very hard struggle for people coming from other countries and not being able to get housing. Thank you Victor.

    • Dear Victor, I think your post was very relatable because my family also struggled with housing so I understand this topic and relate to it well. A line that stood out to me was “housing for immigrants is hard because people talk unacceptable about Immigrants and landlords are making an impediment so they don’t rent to immigrants”. This line stood out to me because people in the United States create a stigma around immigrants and it causes landlords to not rent to immigrants because they think they will do something bad. I agree with your post and the evidence you used was great. Keep up the good work and I hope to read more of your writing!

    • Dear yaritza, Thank you for reading to my work and agreeing with me because this is a sad topic to talk about and see alot of people who left there original country to find a better life but what they found is the opposite of what they are looking for thnak you for giving me more Ideas to write in my next blog.

        • Dear Melissa, Thankyou for read over my work and I agree with you because alot of the ime land lors dont trush on immigrants because other people tlk bad about them and that makes the land lords mad.

            • Dear Victor, I am a student from San Jose State University and when reading your post, it is very heartfelt. I can not imagine the pain and hardships you are feeling and it must be so hard for you. A line that stood out to me was “There are sometimes that people from other cultures like White,Black and all of them get angry because Donald Trump says that immigrants come in and steal Americans jobs when that is not true and that just makes immigrants feel angry because they pay a lot of money for coming inside the United States and the last word they want to hear is that the President is being Racist.” I can relate to what you are speaking here because I think all people deserve equal rights as well no matter what and who you are. Thank you Victor!

            • Hi Victor! My name is Miah and I’m a student at San Jose State University. I love your shadow box. I really admire how proud you are of where you came from. All of the bright colors add so much to the overall look and I love that they each have a different meaning.

            • Hello Victor! I am Aerielle, a student at San Jose State! I really like how each color you included in your shadow box has a special meaning, it is really thoughtful. You say that the color orange represents the positive words of who you are and I find that really interesting! Why do you think orange best represents the positive words of who you are? Is it because it is your favorite color? For me, I would say that yellow would represent the positive words of me because it is bright and I think it is a happy color. I really like how you mentioned El Salvador a lot of times, it really shows that you are proud of your roots! It makes me happy that you are happy with who you are! I think we have a lot of similarities! Such as the fact that we both would choose similar colors to represent the positve sides of us as well as the fact that we are both proud of our roots! I think you did an amazing job on your shadow box!
