"Todos somos inmigrantes. We are all immigrants."
A bumper sticker with this phrase adorns Elizabeth Mandeel's SUV. That phrase illustrates Mandeel's passion - and job - to help the migrant community.
For countless Hispanics in Shelby County, Mandeel is a teacher, a guardian angel, a lifeline to "surviving in America," as she puts it.
She's the Hispanic Liaison for Shelby County Public Schools, leading the Migrant Education Program designed for all migrant schoolchildren and anyone under the age of 22 in the community.
