Dying for the Dream Act
According to the reports he knew that he could not achieve his dream because he did not have the documents necessary to be in this country. His parents brought him to the U.S. when he was very young and it is the only country he has ever known. So, his plight is not his fault. But it could be remedied easily by the passage of the Dream Act which would allow undocumented immigrants to study at the university for the in-state tuition price.
