 National Immigrant Heritage month was celebrated in June around the United States, including in the city of Houston, where a temporary interactive art installation brought people together.

At last count, the city of Houston was estimated to be home to about one and a half million foreign-born residents in the state of Texas as a whole.

Latino immigrants, many of them unauthorized, are the lifeblood of several key industries including construction, custodial work, agriculture, and food services.

According to the 2015 census, nearly 30 percent of all accommodations in food service workers in the state of Texas are immigrants.

Many of those are undocumented and live in fear of being forced to leave the country.

Anuj Shah an immigration attorney based in Houston says, “Often when people are in the United States without papers they feel they have no options, and that therefore there is no hope.

What is interesting, however, is that in many cases when we sit down with these individuals in a confidential setting to consult with them.

 Information often comes to light that provides us options and possibilities to help these people when they themselves had no idea that any such options or possibilities existed.

He adds, “It’s very gratifying work to be able to help people and their families in such a significant way. Often ways that can change their lives for the better.”

Many experts say if undocumented food service workers in the U.S. are deported, the restaurant industry will be crippled.
