When you are undocumented in this country, it usually means you carry around a very big secret. So naturally, even when the president says he’s getting serious about immigration reform – as he did yesterday in Nevada – it’s still hard for undocumented people to believe they might find a legal place in society.
On today's Your Call, we’ll talk about the new program that allows a limited path to employment for immigrant youth. It is being called the “Dream Act, lite.” Is this a step towards more comprehensive immigration reform? Or is it just an election-year strategy to win votes? Join us at 10am PST or post a comment here. What is the ongoing reality of undocumented people in the US today? It’s Your Call with Holly Kernan, and you.
