    The Dream Act is to allow students who arrived in the US as illegal immegrants. The justification is that they arrived as minors, at an early age with their parents.

    It is possible that some of these now young adults may not even speak Spanish nor do they have any ties to Mexico.

    So, should we punish these kids for the act of their father? If we do allow "Dream Kids" to remain, should the parents be required to return to Mexico?

    Did you know the Dream was first proposed in 2001?

    They can apply for a student visa and (re)enter LEGALLY!

    I don't care when or who champions this cause, it remains a vote getting bribe and can only encourage more illegals...

    I'm against any form of amnesty for anyone.

    Send 'em back where they came from along with their parents. They can all apply for legal entry or not at all.

    What a rediculous stance.

    Hogwash. There ain't no jobs. If it was a job in an American company they wanted, they could get one in Mexico, thanx to Clinton.

    You liberals have a short memory. Reagan had an amnesty that still costs American workers billions a year.

    Why would this be different ?

    Part of it is supposed to be a deal - sign up for the military or college and you get to stay. However, there is no mechanism by which if for some reason they do not serve they are not deported, or do not finish school they are not deported.

    Like most legislation FLAWED is the halmark.

    The Dream Act will not pass this session, but it looks like this is just a small piece of the puzzle. As long as the borders are porous it doesn't matter what immigration laws are passed.
