Immigration Laws hinder the Competent

Princeton's 2006 Salutatorian, Dan-el Padilla Perlata, was brought to the U.S. by his father, as an illegal immigrant. he was only four year old then. His family moved 13 times, he lived in homeless shelters, and his father abandoned him. His application for immigrant status has been pending with the INS despite letters written by Senators.

I'm pretty convinced that the government will give him some type of immigrant status in the end. However, the denial of immigrant status to competent people is something that gets to me more than most other topics.
