Young and Undocumented: The New American Story

“Young and Undocumented: The New American Story” centered on the challenges—including limited access to education, healthcare, and financial opportunities—that immigrant college students face. As the White House and Congress take up the debate over immigration reform with new vigor and urgency, the personal stories of these young people from Mexico and Kenya serve as an important reminder of what is at stake in this debate.
