Re: “Undocumented Arkansas students push for college access

I really enjoyed reading this article. When I was in college, I spent a lot of time trying to help a friend of mine (brought to the US as a baby by his parents. no papers) get access to college and there were no options for him. None. We couldn't even get him a library card because it required a social security number. Forget legitimate work, it wasn't possible.

We even went to see an immigration lawyer who told us that there's no clear path to citizenship and the old belief that all you have to do is marry an American to become legal is bull crap. It doesn't work that way anymore.

Years and lots of money later, he finally got his green card. He works two jobs and recently enrolled in college so that his child can have a better life than he had.

These kids who have worked just as hard if not harder than their American counterparts deserve a chance to better themselves. And I think you'll see that when you give these kids that chance that EVERYONE in our society benefits.
