Today's Dreamers: Undocumented Graduates
Most of this year’s 100,000 undocumented high school graduates will not be eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). A new report by Phillip Connor at FWD.us reviews how the new graduates arrived after the DACA cutoff date of June 15, 2007. At the same time, "more than four in ten (43%) of this year’s undocumented graduates live in one of 28 states where they are denied full tuition equity, dramatically reducing many students’ ability to pay for higher education," limiting their access to professional training, work experience, and income to support themselves and their families.
