Big Dreams, Serious Implications: How the DREAM Act can Help America Meet its Workforce Demands
Hermes, James
Community College Journal, v78 n4 p16 Feb-Mar 2008
This article describes how the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act will help undocumented students by: (1) establishing a path to legal status and eventually earn legal residency through two years of higher education or military service; and (2) repealing a provision of federal law that bars states from granting in-state tuition to undocumented students. Advocates of the legislation argue that the DREAM Act must be part of any policy to improve the competitiveness of the nation's workforce.
