It’s a great place to experience the unfairness of being an immigrant! The experience that one has being here, help one see how life is a in thermal and the torture that they get for being an illegal immigrant. It is different here at thermal because people tend to be much better with each other and home is where they find it safe in order to go forward and achieve their dreams for the future of the generations to come.

I have lived in Thermal all my life, and it’s a nice place for people. I live in an area where there’s a nice grass where we go out and play sports and some people even go to work out. What I would like to see change would be house people could help clean up the community.
Thermal is a small place where the people interact to make it better. The community is nice, but there has been some incidents that cause problems. We try to keep things calm, so every once in a while meetings are arranged to talk about important information that we need to know.
