IPC Senior Analyst Michele Waslin was quoted in an Indianapolis Star article about a star student who exemplifies the problems with our immigration system:
More than 64,000 undocumented immigrant children graduate from U.S. high schools every year. Most were brought across the country's borders at a young age and didn't know they were here illegally until they tried to get a driver's license or a Social Security card, said Michele Waslin, a senior policy analyst for the American Immigration Council in Washington, D.C.
"They are put in this incredible tricky situation through no fault of their own, and then we have this extremely complicated process they have to go through if they want to stay here," Waslin said.
