What are your thoughts on the DREAM Act?

The DREAM Act (Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors) is a bill that would help undocumented youth follow their dreams by pursing higher education.
This bill would provide conditional permanent residency to certain undocumented students of good moral character who graduate from US high schools, arrived in the US as minors, and lived in the country continuously for at least five years prior to the bill's enactment. They must obtain a two year degree from collage or two years in the military to be put on a path to citizenship.

Are you for it or against it? And why? Do you know a undocumented youth? Any personal experiences that changed or made your opinion about the DREAM Act?
