Here is the main reason why universities ...

Yeah, I feel bad for little kids, but if they are high school age, they should be filling out paperwork to become a citizen.[/quote] I think you need to research the immigration ...

re: Would you qualify to enter the country under the proposed RAISE Act? - ewdij

That cap includes primary applicants as well as any immediate family members like spouses and minor children. So in reality around 60 to 70 thousand pr...
