Undergraduates in the U.S. Illegally Face a Wide Array of Challenges
Undergraduates who are in the United States illegally face numerous challenges in their pursuit of a higher education, including anxieties about paying for college, fears of deportation, and worries about being accepted on campuses, according to a report released on Monday by the University of California at Los Angeles. The report, "In the Shadows of the Ivory Tower: Undocumented Undergraduates and the Liminal State of Immigration Reform," is based on a yearlong survey of 909 undergraduate students from 55 countries. Participants attended a range of two- and four-year public and private colleges.
