The study by the Migration Policy Institute, a think tank based in Washington, D.C., says that Utah would be more heavily affected by the bill than most states. Utah has the 15th highest number of people who could benefit from the bill.
The study also estimates that 9.5 percent of all Hispanics ages 5 to 34 in Utah would be eligible for help by the bill.
The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act was first introduced in 2001 by Sens. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and Dick Durbin, D-Ill. It has been reintroduced numerous times, most recently last year by Durbin and Rep. Howard Berman, D-Calif.
As comprehensive immigration receives more debate, the DREAM Act again has been receiving attention as part of an overall package or something that might pass on its own.
It would give conditional legal status to people brought to America by illegal-immigrant parents if they entered the country before age 16, were present continuously for five years before passage of the bill, obtain a high school degree and are younger than age 35.
Also I really think that kids of bank robbers should be allowed to keep the money. After all they will need it when dad goes to jail.
Our governments are getting dumber every day. Vote out every one that is in office, No exceptions. We need a total makeover in all branches of government. So please get out and vote. This sick crap has to stop. And thankyou for voting in advance
