The DREAM Act has been reintroduced in both the House (H.R. 1751, by Rep. Howard
Berman (D-CA)) and the Senate (S. 729, by Sen. Dick Durban (D-IL). Several cosponsors of the
legislation have referred to the DREAM Act as a “narrow” proposal to deal only with the
children brought here illegally by their illegal-alien parents. Unfortunately, the facts belie that
claim. Here are the essentials of what the bills would do:
- They retroactively repeal the federal ban on in-state tuition for illegal aliens, so individual states would decide whether to grant this subsidy to illegal aliens at the expense of U.S.
citizens and legal residents.
- They require DHS to award amnesty to every illegal alien claiming to meet minimal criteria: 1) present in the U.S. for the last five years; 2) a U.S. high school diploma or GED,
or admitted to a U.S. institution of higher learning; and 3) of “good moral character” with
no more than 2 misdemeanor convictions.
