  • 8.  Many children are brought to America at a very young age and are educated in our schools. They develop dreams to work or go to college, but their status bars them from doing so. Many students have no avenue to obtain legal status.
  • 9. Students who meet the details below will be eligible to apply for United States citizenship status, and pay a reduced fee: must furnish official transcripts from a high school(s) and middle school(s) must demonstrate that they have “completed curriculum that reflects knowledge of United States history, government and civics”
  • 10.  graduated from high school can show they are of “good moral character” for the past 6 years must be between the ages of 18-25 on the date naturalization application is submitted.
  • 11.  P.R.O.U.D. and D.R.E.A.M. are included in H.R. 4321 Comprehensive Immigration Reform for Americas Security and Prosperity Act of 2009 a.k.a. CIR ASAP It is important that we pass CIR ASAP with BOTH the DREAM Act and PROUD Act.
  • 12.  Is it true the PROUD Act is trying to replace legislation that has already been introduced?  No, the PROUD Act addresses the increasing high school drop out rate by incentivizing students to be good students and citizens in order to obtain citizenship.
  • 13.  Why are the age requirements so strict?  PROUD is a streamlined pathway to citizenship. Students that graduate with a high school diploma, have completed grades 6-12 in the U.S. and have good moral standing, can apply for citizenship once they turn 18.
  • 14.  Why do we have PROUD when we have DREAM?  The bills compliment each other. This bill is NOT meant to overshadow the DREAM Act. I support the DREAM Act, why should I support the PROUD Act?  You can support both. Together they cover thousands of students that would potentially be left out.
