A great Huffington Post piece by Minsuk Kim, youth organizer at the Korean Resource Center, on the need for immigration reform.
“Undocumented Korean American college students have been especially vocal in the fight for immigration reform. The stories of the measures taken by these students and their families to support a college education give the push to pass reform a special sense of urgency. Their hardship extends well beyond their ineligibility for financial aid. A huge question mark looms over their post-graduation plans – without a Social Security number, how are they to find employment?”
This past Sunday, Kim joined more than 100,000 people from every corner of America who came together in Washington D.C. for “March For America,” a march to demand immigration reform and economic justice for all Americans
