I would support the Dream Act, At least it gives the minors a chance to make it right and follow the law and get on the right path of following legalization here in the U.S. If we don’t give them a path to citizenship we will be dealing with a bigger issue of employers still hiring illegal immigrants and we will have more immigrants not paying taxes and will exploit the system. They come to the U.S. for a better life than their country could provide. So why are we making it impossible for their children to go in
The same case where an immigrant leaves their country for good intentions can have bad effect on their family back home. For example, when someone leaves home it can cause their family to lose income and suffer more as a result until the immigrant can either return or send remittances. That is the main negative result when someone immigrates to the US. For individuals in the US, when immigrants are seen either in school or at work, many believe that they are here illegally and are taking the jobs of American people. Even though this fact is true, in most cases, it is not true and the immigrant has earned the spot or position they are currently in.
Although they may have the motivation and willingness to work hard, students often need practical help (161). Unfortunately, in this fast-paced society, there are consequences to dropping out of college (164). Leonhardt mentions how there are limited pay raises for those without college degrees (160). Also, not everyone has the opportunity to acquire a job that is usually only given to college graduates. Although non-graduates may live satisfying lives, many worry how long their prosperity will last (164).
This DREAM act opens opportunities and new doors for immigrants. They have a chance to be accepted. A chance for higher education, careers and to live in the United States legally. The biggest concern is that there is a lot of immigrants who can be smart, creative and hard working students. They have not been given the chances to show what they are capable of doing and their full potential because they are illegal and undocumented.
American Dream United States of America is known as the land of opportunity for many immigrants who dream of a better life. Since the beginning of American history, the US has focused more about equal opportunity than any other country. There are many people who strongly believe that once they come to the United States it is almost guaranteed to find success. Also, they believe that we live in a very different world than them, living the American dream. However, it’s beginning to seem like this country is no longer the land of opportunity for those who are immigrants and the low class people.This is because of the difficulty to get a job, false assumptions, and heavily enforced social classes.
Ungar argues that the government is to blame for their lack of financial support and not the educational institution. Given that Sanford Ungar is the president of a small liberal-arts college, his obvious bias shows when suggesting that small liberal arts colleges are the most rewarding since they have more of a community feel and are usually independent. But, liberal-arts colleges are better in the financial department because they continue to work to expand “need-based financial aid, the net cost of attending” (196). Courtney Umhoefer graduated party from University of Wisconsin and Ohio State University in 2011 with a degree in consumer financial services. The cost of this left her with a student loan balance of $86,000.
Some people oppose the DREAM Act because they think it encourages and rewards illegal immigrants and will attract other illegal immigrants creating migrations of whole families to enter into the U.S. Some Americans believe this Act is unfair because they may have to pay full tuition at state universities and colleges when immigrant students will have easier access to lower tuition to college because they are poor or minority.

Some people think that by accepting the bill they will have to let everyone in, other citizens believe it is unfair for them; they believe they will take most jobs and in some cases take away a citizen’s job. Another factor why people oppose to it is because they believe that undocumented people do not pay their taxes. Another con would be that more people would be inspired to cross to the United States. There are many contradictory statements that make the bill seem like its benefiting undocumented students without anything in return, when in reality it would help
Public education in wealthy school districts is proven to be much more effective than education in urban areas. This gap of quality education can be attributed to economic inequality, teacher quality, and size difference between large cities and suburbs. Although there will never be a flawless solution to this problem of education imparity, it is still important for parents of all school districts to do what they can to help close this gap. The law suit that has been filed against school districts by the parents of Texas students in order to fight for equal education funding, is a big step on the path of improving education in urban areas. This law suit is still in the process of being fought.
