This film is meant to lightly introduce the concept of immigration, while also providing a perspective of the life struggles of not only an illegal immigrant but being a child to one. Within the analysis the author does discuss how the film gives the audience a light introduction of immigration but fails to get into immigration policies or try to make a political statement; which the author disagrees with by stating “no one would make a movie like this without a major political point” (Linda Y. Liu, Under the Same Moon). Thus, the author of the review seems to have mixed emotions about the film by giving it appraisal while also critiquing the
Fixing immigration in America In America the problem of immigration is shrouded by hate, distrust, and anger from the multitudes of races involved. In the last few decades this issue has become wide spread and very divisive. For registered immigrants and people born in America the influx of people allows for a fear of job loss or change of cultural identity. For the issue of immigration, the solution for both illegal and legal, will be to incorporate them as American citizens as well as increasing border security to ensure that this privilege is not abused. This will aid the issue by quickly allowing partial to full citizenship for all immigrants, allowing the government to keep track of all people in the country, and to reduce the fear and anger for the entire nation on both sides of the problem.

Donald Trump, as well as many conservative Republicans would like to would like to build a wall separating America from Mexico, limit a woman’s choices, and deny current citizens basic psychological and physical assistance. We should work towards building human connections, not walls.
Mbue’s characterization that highlights the contrast between Jende and Neni creates a sense of irony that reflects her theme of how the American Dream is not possible due to the obstacles that separate immigrants from American culture. Mbue contrasts Jende and Neni’s beliefs on the reality of them achieving the American Dream and analyzes the irony in the evolution of their opinions. In the beginning of the novel, Mbue describes Neni’s concerns about their future success in America after she received news that Jende’s papers might not be validated by saying, “This helplessness crushed [Neni], the fact that she had travelled to America only to be reminded of how powerless she was, how unfair life could be” (62). She feels this “helplessness” because obtaining papers is yet another obstacle they must face to achieve their dreams in America. However, Neni eventually accepts their
