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.
