HARVARD GRAD FACES DEPORTATION

Rate this Entry

The Boston Globe reports on another case of a potential DREAM Act recipient facing deportation. Alan, the individual who is the subject of the story, is the son of Mexican migrant laborers, came to the US as an infant and his academic success has been an inspiration to children in his neighborhood. Like many others, he did not learn he was illegally present in the US until he was much older - in this case, high school. The Globe notes that Alan is going to leave the US:




Now Alan sees Mexico as his only option. His mother is against it: Alan barely knows his relatives there, and he has no professional connections. It is unclear whether Mexico's elite would welcome him, even if he is a Harvard man.


A maxim he learned at Harvard often runs through his mind: To whom much is given, much is expected. He has $15,000 in loans he intends to repay.


"I should be able to take care of myself,'' he said. "I don't want to go home and sit on my butt and watch SportsCenter. If I do that, then these last four years have been a waste.''

    Mr Durbin can sponser a private bill until CHC and congress sorts out the details on CIR.

    But CHC will not let it get any where. I dont know what you mean by a private bill. Didn't you already have DREAM act introduced and collecting dust in the GPO?

    Besides, Glenn Beck went to say that President Obama is a racist. Glenn, Please have your Fox execs hire away the Germ Doggs.

    That was off-topic, but I just HAD to post that. These people are really dense ;-)

    Why does it matter that her mother who is responsible for him being illegal here is against it.

    Of course he faces deportation, he is an illegal immigrant. Why doesn't he get a job in Mexico?
