I’m a first generation Russian Jewish immigrant, born in the Soviet Union (Belarus) and reared mostly in New York/New Jersey.  When  I moved to Mexico after college a year and half ago, an acquaintance, surprised that I wasn’t “only gringa” and that I spoke Spanish, decided that I would heretofore be referred to as the Gringa Rusa Mexicana.

In this blog, I write from the perspective of my three parts and share my personal experiences, thoughts, ideas and reports on the border (my current home), immigration, US and Mexican public policy, oppression, diasporas and poverty.
