American Dreaming

American Dreaming

For undocumented immigrants, attending college is not a right, but a privilege that very few receive. In the state of Georgia, undocumented immigrants are barred from attending the top most selected public colleges and universities, and to Raymond Partolan, a 23-year-old undocumented immigrant, this is a modern-day form of segregation that he hopes to overcome. Born in the Philippines, Raymond and his family legally immigrated to the United States when he was one-year old. At the age of 10 he became undocumented, which crushed his dreams of attending college and nearly derailed his life when it had just begun. But rather than give up, Raymond emerged as an outspoken activist in support of immigrant rights. And, even though there are no guarantees of employment or future opportunity for undocumented immigrants, Raymond and many others like him continue to lobby congress, speak publicly and protest for the right to attend college and pursue the American dream.
