American Dreamer

March 1, 2010 – Each year tens of thousands of undocumented students, most of them brought to the U.S. as small children by their immigrant parents, graduate from high school. Despite being raised in American culture, these students cannot legally work because of their immigration status. And most cannot go to college, prompting cries for congressional passage of the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors or DREAM Act.

Latino USA in conjunction with Long Haul Productions, brings us part four of the story of one of those recent graduates. Producers Dan Collison and Elizabeth Meister drove Sam to New York to be on an education panel sponsored by The College Board. Sam's Story is titled "American Dreamer."
