States adjust to let young immigrants pay in-state tuition

Education is important for U.S. citizens and immigrants alike. In some states, young people who were brought to the U.S. when they were young face special difficulties in paying for their education. One major barrier for undocumented immigrants has been the difference between in-state and out-of-state tuition. When you have in-state status, you can pay a lower tuition rate, but not all states give in-state status to young immigrants.

Advocates call for shut-down of immigrant detention centers

Despite an unfortunately common perception in the United States, immigration charges are heard in administrative court, not criminal court. Still, immigrant detainees in New York and throughout the country are treated like criminals.

Harsh local policing major cause of higher deportation numbers

In the last four years, the United States has deported a record number of undocumented immigrants. But in different communities throughout the country, these deportations are higher or lower in number. Interestingly, a recent study indicates that having a larger immigrant population does not appear to be the reason certain communities deport more people.

'Unafraid and undocumented' immigrants apply for deferred action

It's not right that young, undocumented immigrants have to be told by their parents never to enter a hospital or an airport. It isn't right that people who came to the United States illegally when they were children have to live in constant fear of deportation. But that has been the reality for many young immigrants for most of their lives.
