65,000 U.S. High School Graduates Per Year Are Undocumented, Unable to Enroll in College

In this week's LEO Weekly, Joe Sonka wrote about the DREAM Act, through the story of a 19-year-old student who was brought to the USA, undocumented, at age 10. She now faces possible deportation if she tries to enroll in a university, and limited opportunities otherwise. Joe joined us on Friday afternoon's State of the News & explained the Act, which would allow undocumented students to apply for citizenship through attendance at a 4-year university or enlistment in the military.
