America's 'illegal' children
 
In 2010, there were an estimated 11.2 million undocumented immigrants living in the US, making up 3.6 per cent of the US population [Al Jazeera]
But it is difficult so say exactly how many undocumented immigrants live in the US as there is no documentation to prove their entry into the country [Al Jazeera]
Viridiana is one of roughly two million undocumented young people living in the US today [Al Jazeera]
Viridiana is fighting back - openly declaring her 'illegal' status so that she and others like her might remain in the country they have come to know as home [Al Jazeera]
Viridiana explains: "As an undocumented immigrant, I'm tolerated but only as long as I stay in the shadows" [Al Jazeera]
Viridiana and her friends spend much of their time campaigning to get the Dream Act passed [Al Jazeera]
The Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act seeks to provide a path to legalisation for eligible unauthorised youth and young adults [Al Jazeera]
The DREAM Act allows individuals to apply for legal permanent resident status on a conditional basis [Al Jazeera]
The conditions state that the applicant must be under the age of 35, have arrived in the US before the age of 16, have lived in the US for at least the last five years and have obtained a US high school diploma or equivalent [Al Jazeera]
