Abstract: Work­ing in an urban safe­ty net facil­i­ty, my col­leagues and I dai­ly face any num­ber of chal­lenges. In some respects, an undoc­u­ment­ed immi­gra­tion sta­tus is just anoth­er one of those chal­lenges. How­ev­er, it is a par­tic­u­lar­ly inter­est­ing one giv­en the con­text cre­at­ed by polit­i­cal, social, and eth­i­cal debate about immi­gra­tion.
