ABSTRACTIllegal Immigration has become one of the most contested and controversial issues facingUnited States policy makers today. This analysis focuses on reform for a particular  population buried under the inadequate policies of the whole: undocumented students.Under current law, undocumented students face a kind of legal purgatory. Their immigration status does not prohibit access to higher education; however, in many statesit enjoins them from receiving state financial aid, in-state tuition, and formalemployment. Proposed legislation known as the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act, or DREAM Act, would allow these students to earn and use their education as legal residents. This thesis combines policy and literature review withinteractive multimedia reporting to connect the law, stories, and impetus for reform.
