If this is real, I don't think this is the ideal place to post. Go to Dream Act's website.

Look for your nationality's nearest foreign consulate and seek advice from the officials.

Illegal immigration is a violation of the law regardless of whether one entered illegally or overstayed a visa.

In addition, residing in the US in fear isn't the best life to live.

Now, how would he do that? He has overstayed his visa. Short of marrying someone he is not eligible to start the legal permanent resident, let alone the naturalization one.

Oh...then he should self-deport as that would be job one. My point is he should legalize himself one way or the other. But whatever he does, he should not wait and do nothing.

Great advice, better take it. INS seems to be cracking down on this type of violation.

Im just curious however, how did you learn to read & write english if you just got here ?? 1 year to learn it all ,huh ?

Can anyone spell HOAX for me ????

How is that starting the naturalization process? By self-deporting he gets a 10year ban on his return ( if he's been here for over a year )

Overstayed,

About school, try talking to your local community college/university, in some states it is still possible to go to school while you are an IA, and in some you might qualify for in-state tuition, depending where you finished your high school.

About your status, try going to talk to a lawyer to see your options, some of them have a free initial consult where you can ask them questions about your specific problems and create a plan of action. If you cannot find one, look for services at religious institutions, some of them have free legal clinics where lawyer volunteer to help out people (and meet their pro-bono) or they will be able to steer you the right direction. You should not be afraid from lawyers, you should be able to talk to them openly as a customer, and they are required by law to keep your information confidential.
