I was brought to this country with my mother, father, and two sisters. My father had a working visa and brought me here. I received a social security but nothing else. My father and my mother separated and he left me and my family in this country.
I have attended school here 1 - 12. Now, I'm graduating college with a bachelors in criminal justice and a minor in pre law this year with honors and I want to attending law school. However, since I'm a illegal citizen I can't afford to go to law school. I was fortunate to receive a private scholarship to receive my bachelors degree because I graduated with honors in high school. All I pay out of pocket is a 1,000 dollars a semester.
I have been working minimum wage since the age 13. I pay taxes. I work hard for everything I got. I have been offered scholarships to attend graduate school but I can't take them because I'm not a citizen. I have great credit because I was able to open a account with my social security.
I really want to continue to go to school or even start a career, but not being a citizen is holding me back. I can't get an I'D. Can anyone please give me advise, my life is on the line. I already believe I'm a citizen of this country but I just need a piece of paper to prove it.
