FILE - In this Nov. 12, 2012 file photo, University of Tennessee student Travis Kennedy takes a few minutes on the way to class to sit on the South Lawn Ayers Hall in Knoxville, Tenn. Twenty-one leaders of Tennessee's colleges and universities have sent a letter to the state's two U.S. senators urging their support for immigration reform that will allow more graduates to remain in the country after they finish their education. The letter dated Wednesday, June 5, 2013 asks Republican Sens. Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker to back a bi-partisan plan that would ensure foreign-born students educated in U.S. universities will have a clear path to work in this country after graduation.
