The basic premise is that the move would help fix a social injustice. The people who qualify for the amnesty are those who did not choose to be illegal immigrants. In essence, as illegal immigrants these are people without a country. All their lifelong friends are from the US, and they know no body - and perhaps don't even speak the language - of their motherland. In addition, by adding people with degrees to the country, it will help us advance.
On the other hand, some say that this measure might cause more harm than good. If you are a parent, ask yourself this: would you go to a country illegally if you thought your child would get a chance for a better life? I doubt there are any parents out there who would say no. Parents will do anything for their young.
So is the Dream Act going to pass - and is it necessary for our country? Weigh in and debate with us in our comment section.
