Comment: Silicon Dreamers - The Wall Street Journal reports "A group of Silicon Valley technology leaders, impatient with attempts to rewrite immigration laws, is funding efforts to help undocumented youths attend college, find jobs and stay in the country despite their illegal status. The group includes Jeff Hawkins, inventor of the Palm Pilot; and the family foundations of Andrew Grove, co-founder of Intel Corp.; and Mark Leslie, founder of the former Veritas Software Corp. Laurene Powell Jobs, widow of Apple Inc. co-founder Steve Jobs, has for years supported undocumented students through her organizations that help low-income high-school students. The Silicon Valley money is part of a broader response by individuals and states to Congress, which hasn't passed the Dream Act." This is yet another example of individuals stepping up to provide solutions to the problems created by our broken immigration system, and attempting to do some justice in the face of grave injustices perpetrated on the innocent.
