Maria Gomez is just the kind of young person we need in America. Though she was brought here illegally when she was 8 years old, she persevered in difficult circumstances. She excelled in school and was accepted to four University of California campuses and attended UCLA as an undergraduate and then completed a master's in architecture.
Isn't there someone who can help this young woman become a citizen? A college degree should be one step on the road to full citizenship. Getting hired in a career position is impossible unless these young people are citizens.
Thank you for reporting this complicated issue. Something has to be done to change things.
Regarding "the country that made you hide like a criminal," last time I checked, being here illegally was against the law. Other than being here illegally, there is not much difference between Gomez and a lot of other students who were born here or who came here legally.
