¡Palabra!: Undocumented Immigrants

Undocumented immigrants are foreign nationals who entered the United States without authorization or entered legally but remained in the United States without authorization. However, undocumented youth and students usually have no role in the decision to come to this country. They are usually brought to this country by relatives, and for many, they have spent many more years in the United States than in their country of origin. Many undocumented students are honor students, athletes, student leaders, and aspiring professionals. But because of their immigration status, the majority are unable to access higher education and even if they do, they are not legally able to obtain employment upon graduation. See the definition Spanish.
