    Illegal immigration

    Discussion in 'Research' started by VioletKnight, Aug 14, 2015.

    So if you read my introduction you'd find out that I'm working on a superhero universe, and one idea I have is a superhero who is an illegal immigrant, either someone who came here as an adult, or someone who came as a child and is able to stay through something like the Dream Act.

    So I'd like some resources to get an accurate representation of this subject. Any movies, documentaries or episodes of TV shows, that are both watchable and accurate would be appreciated as well.

    Info on an illegal immigrant that benefits or an illegal immigrant that harms?

    The DREAM Act...
    Requirements for conditional resident status[2]

    • person must have proof that they entered United States before the age of 16 and must have continuously lived in the country for at least 5 years
    • must have graduated from a United States high school or obtained a GED
    • person demonstrates good moral character
    • pass criminal background checks and reviews
    Well, you've got to hope that this would be an illegal immigrant who benefits...

    Oh, I misread the question. Your answer is spot on.

    Cesar Milan, the infamous Dog Whisperer, was an illegal immigrant before his fame basically got him American citizenship. Pretty sure there's at least one episode of his life where he actually tells people how he crossed the border etc.
