Dear Editor:
I just glanced through the provisions of the proposed Student Adjustment Act of 2003. While the provisions of the Bill are laudatory and seek to give the permanent resident status to students who meet threshold requirements, I feel it should also include: 1. Those who legally entered US before the age of 21 years; 2. Enrolled as Students in an accredited Institution/s and graduated from the Institution/s, and 3. Have been employed by a US organization (OPT/H1B), all the while maintaining legal status, and 4. Have completed five years of continuous residency in the US. I am aware of a number of individuals of this description who are awaiting labor certification or adjustment processes. Depriving these individuals and asking them to go through the labor certification/immigrant visa/adjustment of status processes when other students are sought to be covered by the Dream Act waiving these requirements would appear to be discriminatory. I am sure this was a consideration that was overlooked by the sponsors and AILA should begin a campaign to set this matter right and put it in perspective.
