Each year, thousands of immigrant children who graduate from high school and who
have grown up in the United States, are unable to pursue their dreams of going to college because they lack legal immigration status.
These graduates include honor roll students, star athletes, talented artists, aspiring doctors and U.S. soldiers. Despite the fact that many have grown up in the U.S., attended local schools, and demonstrated a sustained commitment to learn English, our immigration laws provide no legal avenues for these students to rectify their status. Although many of these children were brought to the U.S. as children, they face unique barriers to higher education; they are unable to legally work here; and they live in constant fear of detection by immigration authorities.
