The DREAM Act is a commonsense bill in the U.S. Congress that would help young, undocumented immigrants brought here as children to achieve their full potential and contribute their talents to the country they call home. The DREAM Act would allow those youth who graduate high school to earn legal status and eventually citizenship by meeting a set of stringent criteria. They must graduate high school and maintain good moral character, then attend college or serve in the U.S. military for at least two years. These kids are as American as anyone born here, with the same aspirations, interests, and dreams. They will strengthen our nation’s economy and communities as did the immigrants who came before them.
