One of the Administrators of this website has already written about how ‘getting-in-line’ is exactly what made her undocumented or ‘illegal.’ Read her story here.
This story (Courtesy:Ianus from DAP) demonstrates why an undocumented student should not ‘go back’ to petition for a student visa because s/he are most likely to be rejected after years of ‘illegal’ stay in the United States.
AZfamily news asks, is America taking away its own opportunities with this story on a bright student named Daniella Aguado who graduated high school, gained a scholarship to BYU, went back to Mexico to do things the ‘proper way’ and got denied an F-1 student visa. She is now ineligible to see her family, which is still in the United States.
His middle daughter, Daniella, who he calls Danny, graduated from one of the best public high schools in the state. Her academic awards adorning the den walls.
But the US generosity ran out when Daniella went back to Mexico to apply for a student visa for college and immigration officials discovered she had gone to an Arizona school – as an illegal immigrant.
All her hard work was not enough to make up for being snuck into the countryâ€¦ and “sucking up” its resources.
“I don’t know what the problem is, because I was going to pay for school. I was going to pay for housing. I was paying for my books. I wasn’t asking for anything from the government.” says Javier.
See her video here.
Aguado, without a doubt, is an investment that the United States has clearly squandered. Instead of reaping the fruits from the seeds sowed through high school investment in Aguado, the government would rather uproot the plant just when it came to bear fruit.
Lets not squander the investments made on thousands of other undocumented students like Aguado who were brought up in this country through no choice of their own.
Pass the DREAM Act now and give these kids a chance to repay the United States of America, their home.
