DREAMers as High Skilled Immigrants

Today I saw a video of a hearing on High Skilled Immigrants -  Pia Orrenius, an economist from the Federal Reserve Bank in Dallas gave an interesting presentation on the need for highly skilled immigrant workers in the U.S.  I find it odd that DREAMers have not been considered as a possibility to fill this need - considering they have U.S. university educations and are already here and embedded in U.S. culture.
