This student, an undocumented immigrant in San Jose, California, is heading off to college. Counselors say other students without legal status see no reason to go on to higher education because their job opportunities are limited.

Each year, nearly 100,000 undocumented students graduate from U.S. high schools. But only a small fraction enroll in four-year colleges. Counselors in California and other states say students who are unable to legally work can get discouraged from pursuing higher education. Economists say that limits their economic mobility and the economic growth of the states they live in.
