Slaby recently photographed a young Colorado girl who is one of tens of thousands of immigrant-children who stand to be positively impacted by the passage of the federal DREAM Act this fall. The Act comes before both chambers of Congress and essentially affords children of ‘good moral character’ who have been in the United States for more than five years and who have graduated from an American high school a path towards permanent residency. Their residency hinges on completion of either college education or military service.

For immigrants with the academic credentials to attend college, the DREAM Act affords them the opportunity for in-state tuition as well as federal student loans (two things currently unavailable under federal law).

The Act was also part of the focus of Luceo’s recent group project, Still Hoping, available here: www.stillhoping.com
