The Life of an Undocumented Immigrant
Background on Martin Jakob
Life Living In America
When he made it into California Martin started school as an 8th grader. The way the Czech Republic was described to me was a cold place in which prices were high and the salary of an average citizen was lower. the appeal to America was the opportunity and overall better lifestyle. After his dad divorced, housemother struggled to make money. Him and his family can use the opportunities and resources in America to give themselves the life to be lived, as a high school student living in Eastvale. This move to America was necessary in order for a life to be lived comfortably. Undocumented, but not unjustifiable.
Comparing Marvin to the Gilded Age AND the Oregon Territory
The attractiveness of The Oregon Territory was in a way similar to his family moving from Maryland to California and Czech Republic to America. Not only are the jobs attractive, but so are the life style.California has an abundance of resources and experiences to live, similar to how Oregon was a new frontier that attracted many people.
