DREAM Act Introduced

March 31, 2009
 

House and Senate leaders last week introduced the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, which provides a pathway to permanent residency to undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as children (aged 15 or under) and who attend college or serve in the military for at least two years. The original DREAM Act was first proposed in Congress in 2001; in October 2007, the Senate blocked a vote on it, 52-44 (60 votes were needed).
