Many college students found their dreams dashed when the Senate voted down
the DREAM Act last week as the 111th session of Congress draws to a close.
DREAM Act was proposed legislation that would provide a path to citizenship for
undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States illegally
as children. Under current U.S. law, undocumented children immigrants
are allowed to enroll in public schools through high school. But after
high school graduation, their educational and career options are severally
limited because of their illegal status.
According to the Migration Policy Institute, over 800,000 undocumented
immigrants would have benefited had the DREAM Act become law.
