DREAM Act, Development Relief and Education for
Alien Minors Act was first introduced in 2003. Its
later versions came up in 2007, 2009 and 2011
DREAMers are kids who were brought in the U.S. illegally.

diploma here but won’t be able to attend college or get
driver’s licenses or other government recognition due to
their illegal status.
They can be deported anytime to the country they were
They were brought up here and consider the US as their
They inherit their status from their parents who are illegal.
Does the DREAM act include a path to citizenship?
Those who grew up in the US when they were 15 or
younger and under age 35 and have been in the
country at least five years before the DREAM act is
implemented as a law can apply for a temporary legal
status for 6 years, which can then be utilized to obtain
a permanent legal status provided the individual
meets certain conditions.
DREAMers can drive, work, qualify for state grants
and take part in almost all activities that legal
residents in the country can do except traveling abroad
for an aggregate of at least 365 days. They don’t qualify
for Pell or Federal financial aids.
The Republicans favor DREAMers but are not happy
with the Senate version of the immigration law passed
with a majority of 68-32. They are working on their
own version of the DREAM act tentatively named
KIDS act, which does not offer a pathway to citizenship
If DREAMers will get better prospects to earn and have
a future in the U.S., they will contribute to the
economy through the taxes they will pay and the
income they will generate. In addition, the criminal
justice and social service cost will also come down.
