Coming Out of the Shadows


This is the story of three UT students and their families who emigrated from Mexico and would be benefited by comprehensive immigration reform. The Gang of Eight plan could affect up to roughly 11 million undocumented people by providing them with a complex and long path to citizenship to residents that have been here since December 2011. Immigrants will also have to pass a background check, pay taxes, and pay a fine in the thousands of dollars. The bill could hit the Senate floor in June for its first legislative hurdle.
