Conn. Gov. fights for undocumented immigrant
Mariano Cardoso Jr., an undocumented Mexican immigrant who grew up in America, gets help fighting deportation from politicians

Connecticut's Governor Dan Malloy has joined a grass-roots campaign to stop federal officials from deporting an undocumented immigrant. Malloy says the young man can contribute to the country, and he's proven it.

Now, living outside Hartford, Conn., the 23-year-old is about to graduate with an associate's degree in liberal arts.

Now, however, he's in danger of losing it all, because his parents immigrated to the United States illegally. In 2008, federal immigration officials discovered his undocumented status. Now he's due to be deported within 60 days. In his fight to stay, Cordoso Jr. has gained a powerful ally.

"We've made a substantial investment in our society of this young man. I'd like to see that pay off for us," said Gov. Dan Malloy.
