The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (D.R.E.A.M. Act) is a bipartisan legislation which would allow young undocumented people who arrived in the U.S. at a young age to pursue their higher education and provide a path to citizenship once the following requirements are met.
The D.R.E.A.M. Act has four basic requirements which are:
You entered the country before the age of 16;'
You graduate high school or obtain a GED;
You have good moral character (no criminal record); and
You have at least five years of continuous presence in the US.
Why it matters
Everyone deserves an education and equal access to it. Undocumented students get a chance to attend a higher education institution and follow their dreams.
It would bring our country economic benefits for example, D.R.E.A.M. Act could add from $1.4 to $3.6 trillion in taxable income.
It will bring immigration focus and border security to the serious threats to our nation and not people with good moral character
Our country will be more competitive in the global economy because we will have more students in our universities which will bring more innovative ideas.
