Time to Pass the DREAM Act

The Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act is proposed legislation that addresses a common issue faced by people who were brought to the United States years ago as undocumented immigrant children, grown up, and still attend school. Many of these students are graduating from high school and eligible for college but find themselves without an opportunity to apply for financial aid or scholarships. Many of these students arealso  honors program participants, talented artists, and potential teachers, doctors, and entrepreneurs. Yet, many of these bright minds face the challenges of not being able to attend college and/or work legally in the United States. Unfortunately, the current immigration laws do not address any of these issues; however, the DREAM Act would provide a path to allow these students to thrive and contribute to our society.
