Dream Act for Undocumented College Students - An ongoing discussion on the DREAM ACT and other immigration, political and public health issues.
As a DREAMer, I hope Obama really does move this as quickly as possible! I've been dogged down enough in the past :(
Pres. elect Obama should pass the DREAM ACT into law as soon as he gets into the oval office. These undocumented children should not be punished for the crime of their elders. They were brought to America clueless of the consequences of being undocumented here. These youngsters having lived and been educated here have assimilated very well to the American life and culture. Many are talented, ambitious and will surely be assets to the American society if given the chance to be legal residents here. America is known for ite generosity, compassion and benevolence. Why dont we give such to these youngsters who has been living here for at least a decade. America loses nothing by legalizing these "dreamers", but will gain a lot from these young, enthusiastic and grateful soon-to- be Americans. Let us not punish these innocents but let us help them realize the "American dream" by enacting into law the DREAM ACT ahead of any comprehensive immigration bill.
