Education is a Human Right, DREAM Act Filibustered [Blog] – Generation Justice

The first thing that you question is “What is the DREAM Act?” The DREAM Act stands for the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors. The DREAM Act is a legislation that would allow and give an opportunity for immigrants to get an education and live here in the United States. That way the immigrants could have a good paying job and go to college. There are only a few states, including New Mexico, that allow immigrants to come to the U.S. and get an education.

I personally think the DREAM Act is a great idea. I think anyone from anywhere should be able to live, get an education, a job, go to anywhere. It should not matter if you are an immigrant or not in order to get an education. This would have been great, but, sadly, the DREAM Act did not go through. I think that people are going to keep trying to make the DREAM Act go through even though it got denied.
