constraints allow the rhetorical situation of the article a compelling and influential argument through the efforts of proposing the conflicts with the ideals of human rights. Going in depth of the purpose, the exigence is to confront the “problematic educational policies” and amend new policies that allow both undocumented and DACA students to achieve post-secondary education. South Carolina currently has one of the harshest laws regarding the treatment of undocumented immigrants and DACA students. The South Carolina Illegal Immigration Reform Act passed in 2008 which essentially placed tighter restrictions on immigrants in areas of housing, education and employment. The legislation hinders undocumented students from studying in colleges and universities and cannot qualify for state scholarships or other federal financial help (Ramirez 2008). Bailey and McCorkle call into question of the discriminatory legislation and perhaps the state’s denial of this “fundamental human right” that affects the country’s youth and commitment to the United Nation’s Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Bailey and McCorkle 162). The authors indicate other welcoming nations and its “global sustainability efforts” to set a global comparison between the issues and challenges the United States face within its own borders and immigration policies of other nations. They address the question:” How will our international peers view our country as the word spreads and as comparisons are made with Germany and other representative democracies?” (Bailey and McCorkle 162). Drawing attention to these laws and its effects provides a possible reform towards altering this “violation”. While completing an analysis of this article, it is also important to consider the audience in the discussion. Both authors are faculty members in the Social Studies department at Clemson.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
