Re: DREAM Act a nightmare
I'm not saying that I support this, but after reading the Wiki link "During the first six years, the immigrant would be granted "conditional" status, and would be required to graduate from a two-year community college or complete at least two years towards a 4-year degree, or serve two years in the U.S. military. After the six year period, an immigrant who met at least one of these three conditions would be eligible to apply for legal permanent resident status. During this six year conditional period, immigrants would not be eligible for federal higher education grants such as Pell grants, but they would be able to apply for student loans and work study", it might not be so bad if they narrowed it down to the serving in the Military. The student loans have to be repaid. There have already been tax payer dollars spent teaching them English so they can graduate from our schools. If they would take care of the illegal immigration problem, we wouldn't even need anything passed like this. But would it be that much different than granting freedom to Black Slaves who fought in the Revolution War in place of their Masters?
