Change In Status

When President Obama announced his plans of allowing some young illegal immigrants to stay in the country, he changed the fate of hundreds of thousands. Dick speaks with three young people he's met in recent years: Irving, a student who had been offered a full ride to Marquette University; Sahid Limon, a photographer who had been picked up by Immigration and Customs Enforcement; and Deyanira Chavez, a student who had dropped out of college because she couldn't afford to pay for it.
