In this book of political fiction, the author is trying to convey a message to the Lati people of this country and at the same time attempting to unmask the ugly face of racism as it exists today in the U.S., t only for Chicas but also for other mirities in America. He presents and counters all those false stigmas that have been laid at the feet of the Chicas and Latis of this country. He presents the absurdity of the Chicas and immigrants from Mexico being called aliens, illegal, and wetbacks. He also addresses the biases in our legal system and how laws are used as vehicles of discrimination and oppression. J.J. Koehler believes in his soul that laws as well as the hearts of men can be changed by presenting the truth from the perspective of the people who are the victims of these unjust laws and revealing the suppression these laws cause. He exposes the lies and the real reasons why Latis have been targeted in the psychological warfare being waged on them as a people. He believes that violence is t the answer but education is. He advocates compassion, love and kindness as the only way true and lasting change can be realized.
