'Las personas a las que prestamos servicios son, en efecto, financieramente invisibles'


Nací en México y llegué a EE. UU. de niño. Estábamos indocumentados y solo podíamos hacer trabajos ocasionales en el mercado de pulgas local para poder llegar a fin de mes. Durante muchos años, vivimos en las sombras de la sociedad, con miedo de ser capturados, detenidos y deportados. Este miedo permeó todos los aspectos de nuestra vida hasta 1986, cuando el Presidente Ronald Reagan firmó un proyecto de ley de amnistía que otorgaba a los inmigrantes como nosotros un permiso para salir a la luz del día.

'The People We Serve Are in Effect Financially Invisible'

Viewpoints: For the 63 million unbanked and underbanked people in the U.S., the cost of living in the financial shadows is tremendous and further compounded by the COVID-19 pandemic, writes José A. Quiñonez, founder of Mission Asset Fund.

I was born in Mexico and came to the U.S. as a young boy. We were undocumented and could only work odd jobs at the local flea market to make ends meet. For many years, we lived in the shadows of society, afraid of being caught, detained, and deported. This fear permeated every aspect of our lives until 1986, when President Ronald Reagan signed an amnesty bill granting immigrants like us permission to come out in the full light of day.
