Growing up undocumented in Sesame Street
Carlo Alban came by to ACLU Studio the other day. His name may not sound familiar but he was a regular on Sesame Street TV show for five years. He was playing Carlo, a sweet teenage latino boy, friend with Big Bird. But all along, Carlo had what he describes as a terrible secret : he was illegal in the country. What is it like to live with the fear of being deported back to Ecuador at any moment when you are a 12 year-old on a world famous show? Listen to this podcast (3:35) that I helped produced and edited.
