Of COURSE they knew that! Of course!
So grateful I got this up on time... I've been struggling with severe sinus pain and pressure thanks to the crazy weather here in DC, and it's turned into being sick for real. I'd much rather fast-forward to allergy season, allergies hurt less than this.

I remember my junior year in high school history class we were discussing what was then the current immigration trends and almost all the kids in the class were surprised to learn that A) not all illegal immigrants are Mexican, and B) there are millions of people from Latin and South America who immigrated here legally. As an adult I have a much more rounded understanding of the issue, but I've never forgotten the shock of realizing how little I understood at the time.
Hooray for growing pains, eh?
I never had an experience quite like that, but I've heard stories like it from people whose family members were in similar situations. My education on the matter started when I wrongly assumed a classmate from Puerto Rico was Mexican (not unlike what Darren and Allison are doing up there), and then when I started working in social services I learned that in the DC area there are actually very few Mexican immigrants. As an adult working in social services I learned the DC area in particular has a very diverse Latino population. Lesson learned.
