First generation immigrants living in the Unites States has quadrupled.
Immigrant population has grown so drastically from 9.6 million in 1970 to about 38 million in 2007. In these numbers children of immigrants are included, because according to the government them too are consider “illegal” as they referred.
This brings me to undocumented students ( the children of immigrants). They face all kinds of challenges once they reach 12 grade when they find out that they are not like their friends they don’t have that 9 digit number that will hold back from doing so much.
The way an undocumented student grows Most undocumented students all they know is the U.S. Most children don’t know they are undocumented till they hit grade 12 or sometimes depending if their parents are open about the subject.
It’s better when a students do all the process with a friend, because it’s a lot easier to follow through and not get discourage.
