Hi.
This is my whole house
and this is where we live outside through
the train tracks.
And this is my sister’s owl.
Paloma brought me this camera
and my life is nice
because sometimes my sister …
This is my sister.
My sister, when they buy her something
and they don’t buy me anything,
she gives me some of her lollipop.
And that’s me,
how I look like.
And that’s my brother.
He’s nice, right now he’s not at home.
He’s with his friends
and my mum is at the park.
She’s my cute sister.
Isn’t she cute?
I love her a lot.
OK, goodbye. OK, bye.
Sorry, sorry, sorry, sorry.
I live in Crisanto Street
and that’s my friend Gael.
I don’t know if you can see him.
Hello.
And that’s Carely.
I live in a trailer.
I live in a trailer.
Uhm, Lindy. Lindy.
There’s a whole street.
All of this is the whole park.
That’s the whole street also.
It’s so cool.
Do you like this?
Uh huh.
Over here.
Hello Ma.
Goodnight, Vanessa.
Goodnight, Geovany.
Goodnight, Mum.
Goodnight, Geovany.
Goodnight.
Goodnight, Vanessa.
Goodnight, Ma.
Goodnight, Irving.
I can see everything in the world.
All, da da da da da.
We’re going on the mountains
in our favourite rocket truck.
And we’re gonna go to a different place.
And over here.
Now let’s live out of a new truck now.
It’s the end of the story
of the little cute truck, truck.
Bye bye trailers.
I’m gonna miss you.
(Sending kisses)
Bye.
Bye everyone.
I’m gonna miss you a lot.
Especially that van and Scotty and everyone.
Bye bye.
OK. I’m so excited.
I really want to see it through now.
My house!
I can even dance here. La laaaa.
Professional.
I’m gonna see.
There’s three rooms.
There’s three rooms!
Hold on, tell me that this is all a dream.

    Such a heartwarming tale. We should find permanent housing for millions more migrant workers in the US.
    As an added bonus they'll be so grateful I'm sure they'll vote Democrat for forever more…

    You know this is all heart breaking, we are supose to be the most advanced, intelegent people, country at one time in the world, didtatorship has beenvwhat we have faugh for our fofathers, sons, uncles, grandfathers gas givenbtheir lives for a better way if life for all Americans and look at us as soon as the elders lay theur geads to rest, wr chikdrenvbegan ti fight over whats mine verses yours, what I can take and who I can influence to help me take all, totally missing the point of being one anothers keepers here at home and abroad,
    We make life evil for some and life good for others
    When will all the madness end and we take up the plows the garden tools, to rebuild lives, homes, stop tell a man his home is not his castle, his family is not worth saving look at us we are killing ourselves and no one is really trying to save America and its people no matter hiwwe git here,cwe are stillbthe tured, tge poor, huddles massavge yearning to breath, be free, to worship God, to live country live Famiky, neighbors as one would have hus neighbor do kindly unto you God has Blessed America, now Anerica Bless The Lord.

    "In the shadow of Silicon Valley, a hidden community thrives despite difficult circumstances"
    So you've looked into that woman's eyes, at 3:06, and concluded she's definitely thriving.

    And all the liberal rich silicon valley simpletons live in their $3000 a month luxury apartment. They only want these people to clean their homes, pick their food, cook their food but don't live in my neighborhood. Phony leftist. California is a feudal state. The super rich and the poor. Its 50th now for education. The middle class fled out of state or is dying.

    Hi, I have a Masters degree and live in a tiny mini-studio on Chrisanto Avenue across from the trailers. I work two jobs to afford my rent and imagine most of those living across from me are laborers and work quite hard to just barely exist in Silicon Valley.

    I used to live right on this street in the 90's … there is a huge apartment complex there overlooking the train tracks … and it is loud. I used to park out on the street there and not in my parking place until my car got run into. I feel for the people who are living on the street like this, and there are, and should be many places where they can park if they do not cause problems. They are doing their best trying to survive life in a very tough place.

    I do not support illegal immigrants, but I do not support harrassing them or exploiting them either.

    This story bugs me. I lived on this street working in Silicon Valley in the 90's, now own a home. I lived down the street from here on Escuela St. in the 80's when I was in college.

    Most of the people in RV's and living on the streets like this are Americans … so why make this about illegal immigrants? Or immigrants at all. Without just luck and some training in the right things I might be out there myself or still might be someday. The game in the US is rigged, but bringing in illegal immigrants and making them the issue is just a distraction from the political evolution of this country.

    My tears started falling @ 4:28. That man will miss that little boy's spirit being around. I was homeless (in a compact car) for 5 years. Now, as of a week and a half ago, with the County's help, I am indoors in my own tiny apartment. !Gracias a Dios! I am a full-time student at 56 and soon I will be moving out of state to complete my B.A in English, after which I plan to help people like Geovany's mama to speak proper English, in hopes that I can assist them in their pursuit of their American Dreams. Like the man said, Buena suerte, Geovany [and family].

    Am I missing something? Why are people saying illegal immigrants in the comments? Maybe I'm missing something but it's pretty wrong to assume that this family is illegal

    I've been homeless for the past year. Living in my car.
    I'm not illegal .
    Los Angeles is a tough place to rent.
    South L.A is a place to get murdered real quick in the street at night.
    What do you do?

    WoW, what a nice big apartment they got….I hope they can continue to afford the rent. The rents all over the Western world are driving people to become homeless. They don’t build affordable housing anymore for low-income families. That has to change soon.!! I live close to Toronto, Canada. And the average rental price for a 1- bedroom apartment is around $1800 CAD(almost the same as the USD). Pretty insane that a $100 worth of groceries doesn’t get you much….Plus, plus, plus…+++ These are very insecure times for lots of people. God Bless this family and may that sweet, happy boy stay on the right track. Speaking about track….somebody commented that it is horrible living there with the loud train coming by. You would think they are used to it by now after living in a trailer(which I noticed was rocking..)right next to the tracks! I doubt they are complaining at that(if they even complain?) I believe from witnessing this video that the beautiful lady is a very nice, sweet, patient Mom….Her children are happy, healthy and well taken care off…Mom is always doing the dishes, so she must feed them! Best wishes and prosperity for this nice family.β€οΈπŸ™πŸΌπŸ€πŸ™πŸΌπŸ˜˜πŸ™πŸΌπŸ‘‹πŸΌπŸ™πŸΌ
