Endangered are the thousands of graduates from the state's high schools, colleges and universities who are not in the United States legally. The federal Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act provides a path to legal residency for these students brought to the U.S. as children and who have good moral character if they attend two years of college or enlist in the military

And more support for the Dream act, from the people who make a difference: (maybe the ones against the DREAM Act should stop buying from these corporations, hahaha)

Quote:
Two months ago, Redmond-based Microsoft became one of the first major corporations to endorse the DREAM Act, urging lawmakers to move the legislation forward. Following suit last week were New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the CEOs of 18 New York corporations, including Macy's, Pfizer, American Express Company and Morgan Stanley.
And of course the never-ending support from educators:

Many educators support it as well, including the Washington associations of school administrators and board members, the Seattle and Bellevue school boards and the trustee boards of Wenatchee Valley College and Walla Walla Community College.

Nope. It's not time. I could care less what their dreams are. They need to be home where they belong. Try to fulfill the dreams there.

I have a dream one day people will have the moral character to respect our immigration laws thus resulting in no need for legislation like the "Dream Act". But I'm no fool, I know my dream will never come true

I’m sure these illegal alien ‘future scientists’ would appreciate the passage of this bill. It would be a shame not to give them an opportunity to pursue their dreams.

Do you find it as funny as I do that this is even being discussed? How can people not see thru the b.s. ? The only people who can be for ANY of these pro-immigration stances are the ones who either stand to benefit and/or pay little or no taxes. Do people not realize that, like OBAMA said, we are effectively broke! What do we have left to give? Some people are totally clue-less.

Opposing those who break laws and believing that only legal immigration is acceptable?

Are you insane? There has to something wrong with you for suggesting those two possibilities!!!
