A study of the experiences of young undocumented immigrants as they transition into adulthood in Southern California, their obstacles encountered in the imposed condition of “undocumented,” even within the university experience, and innovative strategies adopted to deal with legal impediments. Using an ethnographic approach and interviews with college students, techniques such as “coming out of the shadows” and “everyday enforcement” are evaluated, as well as theories on practices of cultural citizenship, to demonstrate that undocumented students are claiming space and rights in their daily lives.
