Bill Project Research • Americans are becoming concerned about the 11 million illegal immigrants(aliens) in the states • Most aliens immigrate to California, Texas, Nevada, Arizona, New Jersey, and New York • Throughout the years illegal immigration has increased rapidly • State and federal laws cut off the rights to illegal aliens in the country • In 1994 the government prevented benefits, like health care and public schooling, from illegal immigrants • The U.S. Supreme Court later declared that the education part of the law was unconstitutional • The court guaranteed that children of illegal immigrants get the K-12 education they deserve • Republicans have come up with an easy solution to get rid of illegal immigrants. They will tell all illegal aliens to self deport themselves from the US to go back to their own country. Then if they still want to stay in America, they can get a visa, then wait to get their citizenship • The Development Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act (The Dream Act) is a federal document that legalizes the status of underage aliens • For someone to qualify for the Dream Act they have to meet these requirements
-Entered the United States at the age of 15 or younger
-Able to prove 5 years of presence in the United States prior to the bills passage
-Obtain a G.E.D or high school diploma
-Under the age of 30

• Congress still isn't sure if they are going to pass the Dream Act.. there are some pros and cons about it Pros • Could benefit a group of young illegal immigrants that were brought to this country not by their own decision, but by their parents • Represents basic fairness and
