The problem: Many students graduate from college and high school each year, and face a roadblock to their dreams: they can't drive, can't work legally, can't further their education, and can't pay taxes to contribute to the economy just because they were brought to this country illegally by their parents or lost legal status along the way. It is a classic case of lost potential and broken dreams, and the permanent underclass of youth it creates is detrimental to our economy. Former Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch has said: “In short, although these children have built their lives here, they have no possibility of achieving and living the American dream. What a tremendous loss for them, and what a tremendous loss to our society.” The solution: The federal DREAM Act (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act), is a bipartisan legislation that would permit these students conditional legal status and eventual citizenship granted that they meet ALL the following requirements: --if they were brought to the United States before they turned 16, are below the age of 30, --have lived here continuously for five years, --graduated from a U.S. high school or obtained a GED --have good moral character with no criminal record and --attend college or enlist in the military. Why should you care? There is no other pathway to citizenship for these students. Besides the injustice of punishing children for the alleged transgressions of their parents, throwing away the talent we have invested in from K-12 and accruing losses in human and financial capital by deporting talented students is bad public policy. The Social Security Administration has recently stated that we need a net increase of 100,000 immigrants each year to ensure Social Security solvency. Passing the DREAM Act would actually help solve the Social Security crisis by creating a larger taxable base of educated Americans that are already in the United States. It would also free some of the backlog that currently plagues the legal immigration system. Also, the DREAM Act in its latest form, does not grant in-state tuition to any student. The DREAM act would: NOT grant “massive amnesty for millions of illegal immigrants.” This bill has been narrowly tailored to only include students willing to pursue post secondary education and military careers. NOT mandate states to provide in-state tuition for undocumented students. Instead, the DREAM Act would eliminate the current ambiguity of federal law and give states the right to determine eligibility for higher education benefits. In addition, the bill would allow undocumented students to become eligible for the federal student loan and federal work-study programs to help finance their education. NOT grant “amnesty to illegal immigrants no matter how old they are.” The DREAM Act clearly states that only those that have “not yet reached the age of 35 years on the date of the enactment of this Act” would qualify. Also, students would need to have arrived in the country before their 16th birthday and have been present for “5 continuous years prior to the enactment of this Act.” NOT result in the loss of “seats” at colleges and universities for other students. The capacity for the American higher education system to absorb additional enrollments is far from being exhausted. In fact, even in the realm of four-year colleges, space is plentiful. Each May, our association publishes a list of between 200 and 300 four-year colleges with space still available after most students have already made their decisions about where to go to college. While much of our nation’s popular focus on “college” is, in fact, on the most highly-selective four-year colleges, the truth of the matter is that there exists a full range of post secondary institutions which, taken together, will continue to have space for students well into the future.
@ Yak rider: please explain how it is amnesty if the kids are required to join the military or attend college completing two years towards a bachelors degree in order to achieve status? mind you no grants or money is given to them to go to school.? isnt amnesty what happened in 1986 when reagan just pardoned 2 million people, with no prior requirements??
I support the Dream Act. The majority of Americans are misinformed, especially the people in this forum. The people who claim to be "informed" are corrupted by a sense of entitlement which can usually be traced by to American pride, xenophobia, and nativism. Essentially, they are afraid of what they do not know. This bill is morally, economically, and politically sound. But because Americans think that they should have the right to everything, they oppose it. One of the commentators before me stated that it would remove seats from citizens. Since when is education given? No, in America it is earned. If an undocumented immigrant takes the seat from a U.S. citizens it's because he/she earned it. If you're child is too stupid to get into a university, blame it on yourself, hell blame it on society. However, DO NOT say it's unfair. It is completely fair. In a country that supports fair play policies, its ironic that they don't think it's fair when an illegal immigrant wants to become upward mobile. It's sickening how modern Americans are twisting the American dream. It's also selfish. Another thing people mentioned is the fact that these students should go back to their country after earning an education here. How is this fair? Most don't even know how to speak their native tongue. Also, they must overcome obstacles in order to gain admittance into their respective countries? (different standardized tests, languages, classes, etc) To be American and to deny this law to pass is pure bigotry. I know this because I live in the middle of these two worlds. I am undocumented. I came from Mexico at the age of 4. I have lived here all my life and consider this my country. I value my roots and can speak my language fluently. However, I want to stay in America because this is my country. I grew up here, all my friends are here. Why should I go back to a country that I don't know? If anyone tells me to "go back to my country" I can only reply that I am already here. This law needs to pass now. I graduated at the top of my class, in fact with a GPA 4.65 out of 4.00. Why should I be limited in my education because of a stupid 9 digit number? Why should I not be given a chance to better myself? Again, this act only allows an opportunity. Again, it does not GIVE anything, it ALLOWS for an opportunity. For those that call themselves "American," I think its laughable. Because the undocumented students are more politically aware and more academically engaged than most of the U.S. citizens I know. Let's see how many of your kids can earn citizenship? You people are lucky that your children are given citizenship by birth. If they had to earn their citizenship, it'd be a completely different story. Trust me. Thanks and I hope people here gain a better understanding.

Besides the injustice of punishing children for the alleged transgressions of their parents, throwing away the talent we have invested in from K-12 ======================================... First of all, they should never have made it to kindergarten, let alone college. These students do not go to private school where their mom paid for it with her illegal under the table non-tax paying job. So that means American citizens were funding the child's education. I want my money back so my legal kids can continue to get an education. Second, they are no different than the rest of the country that have wonderful dreams and degrees. Legal (minority or otherwise) citizens are graduating from college all over the country and living on Mom & Dad. They can't find jobs because all the illegal aliens are taking them and sending the money they make back to their home country instead of putting it back into the American economy. As for alleged transgressions of their parents, they came here illegally, illegally, did I mention illegally? What about that is misleading? The parents brought them here illegally, someone has to pay the price. Shame on the parents for putting that burden on their children. The Social Security Administration has recently stated that we need a net increase of 100,000 immigrants each year to ensure Social Security solvency ======================================... I have not found the articles you refer to that state this, however I will give you the benefit of the doubt since you are obviously giving us talking points. Read your own words. A net increase of 100,000 immigrants each year to ensure Social Security solvency. An immigrant is someone that obtains citizenship (temporary or permanent) legally within the country they seeks borders. An illegal alien is not an immigrant. They are criminals. I agree with President Felipe Caldero'n of Mexico. If you are in our country illegally we should "Send back them!"
I am opposed to the Dream Act and I feel I know enough about it to make an informed decision. There are a certain amount of seats in each college class.Any seat taken by an illegal alien, no matter how long they have been in the US, is one more American kid getting shafted. The rich can afford to send their kids to any school, so it is the middle class and poor who face the competition. North Dakota FAR A 2 YEARS OF COLLEGE North Dakota 6 YEARS, anyone can do that just by showing up and doing a minimum of work to pass. As for 2 years in the military, most of that time is taken up in basic training and AIT (training for a specific job). So the person gets training without having to sacrifice much, with free room, board and medical benefits. My solution? End birthright citizenship, and all the other draws to illegal immigration. Encourage legal immigrants to further their education. We are not punishing the illegal aliens who want the Dream Act to pass, we are just not rewarding them and thier parents. They have a country in which to go to college, our schools should be for those legally in this country. The Dream Act will benefit the recipients and their families, not our country.

It is a classic case of lost potential and broken dreams, and the permanent underclass of youth it creates is detrimental to our economy ======================================... You have to wonder why the parents did that to their kids. But the fact is, the moment they return to their native land, they will have all those doors, and many more, open to them. Something you are unaware of is that if someone commits a crime in this country, we do not allow them to be rewarded by that crime. And even though the parents of the child committed the crime for their child, they must pay for that crime. I am sure that if you stop and think about this process, you will understand that if we did allow the Dream Act to mature, we would have a million, million from all over the world sneaking into this country with their kids and waiting until they were old enough to jump on the bandwagon, become legal, and sponsor their parents. Allow the Dream Act to come forward, and we will pay in the trillions of dollars by the conduct of the illegal aliens. Something else.. if we allowed these foreign students to attend school without paying the out of country frees.. and those fees substitute for the taxes that have not been paid.. New Jersey.. just New Jersey, would lose about 116 million dollars a year. Mexican Nationals think the people in this country are endlessly rich.. they..are..not! We cannot afford to allow a criminal act to go unpunished.. we cannot afford to allow these students to take the places of American Students. By the way.. your references are contrived. You need to find something in, for example, the GAO, but the GAO has already indicated the cost was to be extreme with that act.
Mexicans are not our problem. any broken dreams fall back on their parents. You want the dream act and over in your city of North Dakota serve problems exist.The Los Angeles school district faces a $268 million budget deficit for the next academic year that could affect as many as 3,300 jobs, the superintendent said Tuesday. Superintendent Ramon Cortines said he was proposing to partially cover the shortfall by using $103 million in federal education jobs funding and reducing expenses by $5 million at central headquarters and district offices. The remainder, though, could come from employee givebacks. The district intends to discuss several options with unions to avoid layoffs. The possibilities include pay cuts, furlough days or a combination of furloughs and salary freezes, Cortines said. The superintendent noted the budget figures were preliminary because the state has not yet released final funding amounts. Mexicans will use document fraud and you are wrong they do get grants and such or else they would not even need the dream act. Mexicans are not saving up any money for college. Where else do they get it from, the taxpayers of course.There are millions now with college degrees out of work, how is it Mexicans per dream can suddenly have jobs waiting on them and therefore bypassing all others ? Mexicans are just asking for another handout, while legal citizens get kicked to the curb.We will end up subsidizing all of it.They had it at 40, next 35, now 30.. With rampant document fraud no dream act.If Activists,La Raza, Mexico were serious about illegals getting into college, they could start pooling all their money and start paying for all this .Instead of another burden on taxpayers
You keep talking about this. We all know what the dream act is, illegal kids get a parth to citizenship and either go to college or the military. Problem is they are here illegaly and should be deported. We cant send a mesage that if you bring your kids here they get citizenship. The dream act has failed on its own merits, its even brought down other bills. There will be no dream act, its more important to help the american kids than help the kids of foreigners who came to this country illegaly. maybe they can go home and sort their own country out instead of milking america for all they can get.
No, the American people are against it because we do not want to have a civil war over illegal aliens who do not belong here. And make no mistake, the "Dream Act" - Blanket Amnesty for all 30-40 million illegals along with free taxpayer-funded collage illegals up to the age of 36, which is what the "Dream Act" is, no matter how much pro-illegal propaganda is poured out, without question WOULD cause a civil war! ALL illegals need to be deported along with their anchor babies (after they all have their citizenship revoked) back to their own countries and fix their OWN problems instead of making them ours!
No It is that they know they are here illegally and they need to follow the process just like everyone else. If they leave before they are 18.5 they aren't ever considered illegal and could enter the country legally. If they leave and serve out the ban they have EARNED they can come back through legal paths. I have no use for a bunch of law breakers wanting to push to the front of the immigration line. There are rules and those rules are for EVERYONE. I think illegals should NEVER be allowed the privilege of legal residence in the US. The US should only welcome people that obey the laws.
I do not support the Dream Act, and I never will. Those so called talented students should go back to their own Country, and make it a better place. We have plenty of talented educated Americans, already on unemployment. We don't need any more. I also would advise them to pay back all of the student loans they stole from the legal Americans, before they leave.
No they are not because they are against illegal immigration. They are very informed and know the law. Read US Code 8, which is fair and just. It is tragic that these children that grow up and graduate from college are now at a roadblock. Who is to blame? Their illegal parents are. They knew the stakes when they entered this country illegally. And I do not understand how the school systems just allows illegal immigrants when thy are suppose to check their legal status. They should have caught them when they were still young. The school systems in this country are not supposed to assist illegal immigration and that is by law. Also, the US military does not allow illegal immigrants and believe me they do check. If one got in then the military was very sloppy.
It is an amnesty. We should not be educating them at all. Blame their parents who turned them into the criminals. They have the chance to make their selves legal before 181/2. who will pay for that college. No one is paying for my children to attend college. No one paid for me to attend. All this will do is having pro-illegals whining that it is unfair to those who are deported because they don't do what is right. Imagine illegals not doing what is right. If one sibling out of 10 is the only one who does what would be expected. How many are going to whine this separates families. Your attempt has failed again. LOL. And I see no talent being thrown away, only the talent of Americans who an illegal is taking their spot or because of educating illegals at all, the classes OUR children are missing.
