Student Adjustment Act
By Jason Song
Baltimore Sun Staff
Originally published May 13, 2003
Yasse Trujillo doesn't want to
become a waitress like her mother.
But the high school freshman knows
she could very well follow in her mom's footsteps if she doesn't
go to college.
"How am I supposed to do what
I want without going to college?" asked Trujillo, 17, a Guatemalan
who attends Montgomery Blair High School in Silver Spring. "It's
Tens of thousands of undocumented
immigrant students nationwide, many brought to the United States
by parents hoping for a better life, are asking the same question.
In 47 states, including Maryland,
students who do not have proper immigration documents are not
allowed to pay in-state tuition at state colleges. That means
they could face spending thousands of extra dollars a year for
tuition, putting college out of reach.
But two bills in Congress would
grant immigrant students who have graduated from high school,
lived in the United States for at least five years and have not
committed major crimes the chance to apply for citizenship. Students
throughout the nation have been lobbying their elected officials
to support the proposed law, saying it could help them gain a
crucial tool for advancement.
"We should be opening our
arms to immigrants," U.S. Rep. Benjamin L. Cardin of Maryland
told a group of students who recently urged him to support the
House bill, known as the Student Adjustment Act.
But the bills have been fiercely
opposed by critics, who say they would legitimize undocumented
workers and lead to an explosion of illegal immigration.
"This is rewarding people
who came to the country illegally," said Mark Krikorian,
executive director for the Center for Immigration Studies in Washington,
a nonprofit group that advocates more stringent immigration enforcement.
"This is waving a green card in the face of every prospective
illegal alien in the world."
Even Cardin, a Democrat from the
3rd District who has promised to support the bill, said it will
not be an easy sell. "When the economy is not going well,
people look for excuses," he said. "Government leadership
is not friendly to this legislation."
A Maryland bill that would allow
undocumented students to pay in-state tuition was passed this
year by the General Assembly and awaits Gov. Robert L. Ehrlich
Jr.'s signature to become law. The governor is still "weighing
the pros and cons" and has not decided whether he will approve
the bill, said Henry Falwell, an Ehrlich spokesman.
Last week, Virginia Gov. Mark Warner
vetoed a bill that would have barred undocumented students from
receiving in-state tuition.
Nobody is sure how many immigrants
the federal law could affect, although immigration-rights groups
have estimated there are as many as 60,000 undocumented students
Many of the students are like Trujillo,
who split her time between her native home of Guatemala City,
Guatemala, and the United States until she was 12 and has lived
in Maryland since.
Trujillo declined to discuss her
immigration status but said she would benefit from the proposed
laws. She pointed out that immigrants could be in the country
legally through asylum or amnesty programs and not have all of
their immigration documents.
Trujillo talks animatedly about
maybe becoming an airline stewardess because it would give her
the chance to travel. But she wilts when the topic of college
comes up. She isn't eligible for in-state tuition and says she
can't afford to pay full tuition. "I'm studying my head off
late at night, and sometimes I stop to think about it. I think:
'O.K., where am I going with this? Even if I do really well, I
can't afford to pay for college.' It's discouraging."
Educators warn that the burden
of trying to pay for college causes some immigrant students to
lose hope. Sandra Gutierrez, a teacher at Montgomery Blair High,
said she knows of four students who have "disappeared"
from classes at Montgomery Blair, partially because they realized
it would be difficult for them to attend college.
"College has an impact on
how hard they work," she said.
Such reactions are common, say
teachers who work with immigrants.
"Some kids get frustrated.
They do well in high school and find they can't move on,"
said Kelly Flores, a Spanish teacher at Patterson High School
in Baltimore. Several of her students have dropped out of school
after they realized they could not go to college, she said.
"A lot of people think: 'What's
the point? Why should I go to school when I can go to work and
earn money?'" said Yudi Rodriguez, a senior at Montgomery
Some students solve the problem
by returning to their native countries for degrees. But many have
been away so long they have forgotten their native language and
customs and have a hard time adjusting.
Reyes Xavier, director of communications
and education for the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights in
Los Angeles, said his two older brothers briefly attended college
in Mexico instead of paying high tuition in the United States.
But the brothers couldn't adjust to their new surrounding and
returned to the United States.
"They were treated as foreign
students [in Mexico] as well. They were caught in limbo,"
His brothers' experiences persuaded
Xavier to stay in the United States. He graduated from high school
in 1981 and spent several years working at a drugstore to save
"I was just wasting my time.
Luckily, I had a strong-willed family who pushed me to go to college,"
said Xavier, who graduated from San Diego State University.
Immigrant advocates say the federal
legislation would play an important role no matter what happens
to the proposed Maryland law. Kimberley A. Propeack, a lawyer
with the Maryland Latino Coalition for Justice, based in Takoma
Park, noted that critics of the bill assert that states do not
have the right to give undocumented students tuition breaks. The
two proposed federal laws, she said, will "remove any confusion."
The U.S. measure should also be
passed because if undocumented students are granted citizenship,
they also will be eligible for better employment, Propeack said.
Many companies require their employees to have Social Security
numbers, which are granted only to people who have legal status.
Krikorian, of the Center for Immigration
Studies, said he sympathized with young students, many of whom
were brought to America by their parents. But he insists that
immigration laws should be enforced: "Sometimes kids pay
for their parents' mistakes."
Rep. Tom Tancredo, a Republican
from Colorado, opposes the bills, said his spokeswoman, Lara Kennedy.
"We've got to start and be consistent with our immigration
laws," she said. "This would only provide incentive
for people to come here to get the social services that are meant
Other lawmakers scoff at the notion.
"Wouldn't we rather have well-educated children rather than
people whose educations are cut off short?" said Rep. Chris
Van Hollen of Maryland, an 8th District Democrat and one of the
bill's co-sponsors. "That wouldn't be good for the country."

INS Press Release
For Immediate Release
INS Offers Recruitment Bonuses For New Immigration Inspectors
Baltimore Among the Locations Targeted for Hiring Incentives
The Immigration and Naturalization
Service (INS) is offering signing bonuses to new Immigration Inspectors
hired for selected locations across the country, including Baltimore.
The signing bonuses range from a one-time payment of $5,000 for
Inspectors in the Washington, D.C. area to $3,000 for Inspectors
recruited for 29 other locations nationwide. The INS is seeking
to hire more than 1,200 additional Immigration Inspectors this fiscal
In the D.C. area, the bonuses will
be offered to the first 40 newly hired Inspectors who come on board
beginning August 1st. Outside D.C., INS will offer recruiting bonuses
to the first 385 newly hired Inspectors who accept positions at
the designated locations. Those locations include air and land border
ports from Alaska to Atlanta together with a host of sites along
the northern and southern border.
"This is a terrific opportunity
for someone who wants to be on the front lines of our nation's homeland
security effort," says Louis D. Crocetti, Jr., Baltimore INS
To be eligible for the bonus, candidates
must sign a written agreement to complete 12 months of service with
the Department of Justice. Hiring begins at the GS-5 or GS-7 level,
with probable advancement to the GS-9 level.
Immigration Inspectors are responsible
for conducting more than 500 million inspections annually for those
who seek admission to the United States. As the nation's gatekeepers,
Inspectors must enforce our nation's immigration laws and determine
which individuals are eligible to enter the United States and which
persons will be detained or refused entry.
Serving as an Immigration Inspector requires a wide range of specialized
knowledge and training. Many of those skills are learned during
an 11-16 week basic training course at the Federal Law Enforcement
Training Center in Brunswick, Georgia. Immigration Inspectors must
have a comprehensive understanding of the laws and the procedures
governing the entry of persons to the United States.
