    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.

    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.

    Another reason why the DREAM Act needs to pass. Make the parents pay for their mistake yes, but don't do the same to the kids who in many cases never had a say in what happened. At 4yrs old you are expected to know right from wrong and tell your parents no, I won't cross the border because it's illegal? Come on all you wingnuts out there - get real!

    PS: Good stuff Mary! Congratulations.

    Harvard student says he faces deportation from US
    By RUSSELL CONTRERAS - Associated Press Writer
    6/11/10



    BOSTON — An undocumented Harvard University student is facing deportation to Mexico after being detained by immigration authorities at a Texas airport, the student said Friday.

    Eric Balderas, 19, who just completed his first year at Harvard, said he was detained Monday by immigration authorities when he tried to board a plane from his hometown of San Antonio to Boston using a consulate card from Mexico and his student ID.

    "I'd made it through before so I thought this time wouldn't be any different," Balderas said Friday in a phone interview with The Associated Press. "But once ICE picked me up I really didn't know what to think and I was starting to break down

    But it's delusional to think that the problem will dissipate in thin air if the problem is ignored, one that was allowed to happen in the first place until reaching its crisis proportion, and let the outdated immigration system take its due course. Yes, it's un-American to let this problem go on and on and do nothing to at least solve it, much less, address it head-on.

    No! It's un-American to condone breaking the law, and giving benefits to those who have done so.

    That you don't want DREAM Act to have a chance to pass, and its real-time chances of passing are two different matters. I'm talking about the latter.

    The Bad-Dream Act has NO chance of passing!

    Deport all of the illegal aliens, and college kids will easily be able to find work...as will lower-skilled and less-educated American adults.

    Maybe then, going to McDonald's will no longer feel like a quick trip to the third-world, and you can leave your passport at home (plus, you'll be able to order in English and be understood...and your order will be correct)!

    He's still in college so can't apply for professional jobs in his field. What can he do ? What kind of jobs does he look for? Being depressed won't solve any problem. Doing what he can may.
