Technology giants support undocumented students

Posted on March 6th, 2012 No Comments

Leaders in technology, such as the inventor of the Palm Pilot Jeff Hawkins, co-found of Intel Corp. Andrew Grove, and widow of Apple Inc. co-founder Laurene Powell Jobs, have been supporting undocumented students to attend college, get jobs, and stay in the country despite their legal status.

Many of the successful Silicon Valley leaders are strong advocates of the DREAM Act, which passed in the House but failed in the Senate. They have donated thousands of dollars to Educators for Fair Consideration, a nonprofit that offers career advice, legal services, and scholarships to students who came to the U.S. as children.

Since the Supreme Court ruled it unconstitutional to deny K-12 public education to illegal immigrants, undocumented students are left with little hope of going to college or getting jobs after high school. American tech companies are pushing to raise the number skilled worker visas available.
