Good news arrived week before last concerning Monica and Jose. [To learn more about these two wonderful teenagers use the "Search" tool above to the left; just type in "Monica."]
Monica and Jose were brought to the US by their parents when they were just children. Like their parents, Monica and Jose have no approved documentation to stay in the country. But, they have been here almost all of their lives. No documentation, that is, until recently.
That's the good news.
The federal immigration court recently ruled that both of these fine young people, now almost 20-years-old, may remain in the US until April 2010. Their status is pending until that time.
In the meantime, we are hoping that the long awaited DREAM Act will be enacted into law. [For more details on the DREAM Act simply use the "Search" tool above!]
This summer a national film tour is planned to roll out the documentary, "An Unfinished DREAM."
