Undocumented Immigrants And The Us Professional Licensing Problem, Madeleine Truman May 2018

Undocumented Immigrants And The Us Professional Licensing Problem, Madeleine Truman

Brigham Young University Prelaw Review

The number of illegal immigrants to the United States continues to rise each. Many individuals are blocked from citizenship and its subsequent opportunities by a broken system. Undocumented early arrivals, such as DACA recipients and DREAMers, though currently not targeted for deportation, are prevented from succeeding in their chosen field due to an immigration status they did not choose. Like their native born counterparts, they should have the same right to work in a professional field if they prove themselves to be as equally qualified in all aspects barring immigration status.
