The young people who would be provided with legal status and a path to citizenship because of the Dream Act have been here since they were children and have built their lives here. They shouldn’t be punished through deportation to a country they barely know. This bill ensures they won’t face that.
If the Dream Act isn’t paired with measures to counteract and deter the illegal immigration that brought the so-called “Dreamers” here in the first place, the U.S. will have to enact more legislation like this in the future for the next generation of immigrants brought here illegally as children.
