This special report covers the DREAM Act for the Immigration Policy Center. The political debate over undocumented immigrants in the US has largely overlooked the plight of undocumented children, who account for 15% of the population. These children have grown up in the US and received much of their education, but without legalization, they are rarely able to go to college or work legally. They can also be deported to countries they barely know. This wasted talent imposes economic and emotional costs on undocumented students and society as a whole. The bipartisan Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act could provide a solution by allowing undocumented students to apply for legal permanent resident status.
