Chasing the American Dream: From Undocumented to Detective

When Luke Waters was in his 20s, he traveled from Ireland to the U.S. and remained in the country after his visa expired. He worked as a bartender before joining the NYPD where he would spend two decades rising up the ranks to become a leading homicide detective. Now retired, Waters talks to our partners at MetroFocus about his career and experience as an undocumented Irish immigrant in his new book chronicling his journey to the American Dream.
