    This Video Shows The Difference Between A Documented And Undocumented Immigrant

    "Come live the American dream."

    The video is shot side by side, and highlights the small everyday struggles of living life as an undocumented immigrant in the United States.

    From signing official school documents...

    To getting paid for a job...

    To having a broken headlight...

    And wondering if they'll be coming home at night.

    The video ends with a statistic from the Center for American Progress:

    It reads: "If the approximately 11 million undocumented immigrants living in the United States were granted legal status and citizenship now, the US economy could gain an additional $1.4 trillion over the next 10 years."

    The video has nearly 50,000 shares on Univision Noticias' Facebook page, and has 2.9 million views.

    While the video has received some positive reactions...

    ...there were also those who disagreed...
