“[S]he is as American as the kid of Irish-English heritage who likely sat alongside her in school. She speaks fluent English. She made good grades in school. She hasn’t broken a law since she was brought across the border. So, what’s to come of her? She says she is giving up her dream of becoming a nurse because she can’t get a Social Security card or a driver’s license because she is afraid of being deported. Deported from the only country she has known her entire life. Hers is not an isolated case. Each year in the United States some 65,000 ‘illegal’ students graduate high school.”
