Do you believe the DREAM Act would be a proper way of solving some of our immigration law issues?
For the past decade, illegal immigration has been a rising topic. A lot of these people and children are stuck because of the way our legal system works. The Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act (DREAM Act) is a bill that, if passed, would allow a student up to 6 years of legal residence. During those 6 years, the student would need to graduate from a 2-year college OR complete 2 years towards a 4-year degree OR serve in the military for at least 2 years.
1. The student must have been in the U.S. at least 5 years before the bill passes.
2. The student must have been in the U.S. at the age of 15 or younger.
3. The student must graduate from a U.S. high school or receive a G.E.D.
4. Must demonstrate good moral character. Students would not qualify for this bill if they committed crimes, are a security risk, or are inadmissible or removable on certain other grounds.
This bill has been altered many times and voted on several times.
Do you feel this bill is fair for those children here in the USA trying to gain an education?
