Faculty Emeriti Association Lecture  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Professor Francisco Villarruel, Department of Human Development and Family Studies, presents a talk entitled "Educational and Citizenship Opportunities for Undocumented Youth in the DREAM Act."

Under current law young people derive their immigration status solely from their parents. If their parents are undocumented they have no mechanism to obtain legal residency, even if they have lived most of their lives in the U.S. The Dream Act, which has been introduced in the Senate and the House, would permit such persons to obtain permanent legal status and become eligible for U.S. citizens if they go to college or serve in the military. Several states have passed legislation that parallels the proposed federal legislation. Some public and private institutions have passed institutional policy to provide undocumented immigrant youth opportunities to pursue post secondary education.

This presentation will address engaging the MSU community to consider whether MSU should seek to provide educational opportunities for undocumented immigrant youth.
