Well, my story is simple. I came to the US in 1996, at the age of 6 with an I-94. My I-94 has expired. My parents are here on visas and they are able to work legally. I am now 18 years old and a second year student at a university. I have graduated from a high school here. My question is, what are my options as to getting on track for permanent residency/green card, if there are any. My main desire is being able to acquire a driver's license and achieve true independence and the ability to work legally and make my own money.
My hope is dwindling. I have heard all about the DREAM Act, and AB-540. They are all wonderful things, yet that is not enough to be fully free and independent.
