Thanksgiving is a time when American families living under the terrifying threat of deportation will gather. We know that pilgrims were immigrants, too. We know how to bake a turkey until it's golden and go nuts when our team gets a key first down. Like I said, American families.

While being part of two cultures is in many ways rewarding, especially when you consider the benefits of being raised with dual languages, there are also several unique hurdles that are faced only by Hispanic Americans.
