    To koller:
    contact the local job placement agency. They always have jobs available in low-paying sectors, particularly the temporary/seasonal ones, mostly clerical stuff, and you must have EAD/DL or GC/USC to apply (i assume your son is USC and has what is required).

    I think not too many illegal Mexicans are working in offices, in clerical positions or other jobs that placement agencies are sending majority of applicants to.

    to 4now:
    the guy probably was detained due to increased checks that now may apply to domestic flights as opposed to international only in past. After last year incident with Nigerian who tried to blow up the plane TSA announced that it will subject each and all passengers to more scrutiny than ever before and Harvard student or not (especially being the Harvard student!) Eric Balderas must have anticipated the possibility of being questioned and detained before boarding the plane given the lack of US passport, GC or US issued visa stamp in his passport. If he didn't then it shows one can be a student at Harvard and still be an idiot but that's another subject.

    DREAM Act is not going to pass because of an incident like this or similar exceptional cases.
    Knowing it and saying how high the chance of its' passage is sounds like tasteless sarcasm, unless one is really so naive as to belive in possibility of its' passage in current climate.

      Hmmm... somehow it may appear suspect that this Harvard student knew exactly what he was doing..

      The case also sparked a buzz on social media sites and among student immigrant activists who see the Balderas situation as the ideal test case to push the proposed DREAM act - a federal bill that would allow illegal immigrants a pathway to citizenship via college enrollment or military service.

      In March, Balderas was one of hundreds of undocumented students to publicly announce his immigration status during a nationally organized "coming out" day for illegal immigrants.
      Balderas also has been an active member of student immigrant groups around Boston that have staged protests and sit-ins in an effort to get Sen. Scott Brown, R-Massachusetts, to support the DREAM Act.
