Hundreds of Thousands of US Immigrants Don't Want to Turn 21!Several hundred thousand children of US immigrants, who are in the US legally now, with valid visas, face the real possibility that on their 21st birthdays, their visas will expire. The work visas their parents obtained to gain legal entry into the US only cover them as children. So, when these kids turn 21, they will no longer have a valid visa, and may face deportation.
These kids, called Documented Dreamers, yearn to find a way to remain in this country, often the only country they have ever know, legally after they turn 21. Their plight, unknown by most Americans, illustrates the need for changes in the US immigration system.
