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
