For Undocumented Graduates: A Dream Deferred

"Thousands of University of Texas students are graduating and looking
forward to pursuing their careers. Among them are graduates who see
nothing but obstacles ahead. On Thursday, more than 40 UT Dream Act
students and their supporters held a protest on the UT campus to implore
President Obama to grant executive relief from deportation for
undocumented students.  The students held signs that read “I have
the right to live my life without fear” and  “stop tearing families
apart” and chanted “Up up with education, down down with deportation” in
front of several TV cameras. The protest was part of a nationwide
effort to draw attention to the plight of undocumented students who are
graduating this month but can’t advance their careers because they lack
social security numbers." –
