The DREAM Act
Parents who come to the United States without proper documentation often come so that their children may have a better life. However, these children have few options after graduating high school. Children brought into the United States by their parents, even at very young ages, can be deported even though they may not even speak the language or have any family members in their country of origin. They are unable to obtain federal identification, have no legal right to work, cannot enlist/serve in the military, or often attend colleges and universities.
