Trail of Dreams 

There are thousands of young people whose parents brought them here illegally when they were children. They have grown up as Americans and now are reaching adulthood, ready for college and careers- except that many options are closed to them. What do we want as a nation- and what do they want to be? Productive taxpayers? Community leaders? Burger flippers? Prison inmates (=tax burden)? This portion of immigration reform- the DREAM Act- should be a no-brainer. Meet 4 students who are trying to bring publicity to the issue.

       First off, the DREAM act has been proposed separately precisely because it deals with youth raised here- it does not open any doors for undocumented adults. Passing it does no favors for the criminals you have cited. Most everyone who eats affordable food or enjoys a clean hotel room or shiny bank floor in the morning accepts that we need immigrant labor in some form; and rational people understand how futile and prohibitively expensive mass deportation and building and policing The Great Wall of America would be. Most everyone can also agree that criminals- as opposed to violators of statutes like visa laws and traffic tickets- should be deported. I personally do not know of anyone advocating a blanket amnesty for criminals. I will also say that I have seen over-eager police and local prosecutors profiling Latinos and pressing frivolous charges simply to jail, intimidate and bankrupt them with legal fees. Nothing short of comprehensive immigration reform will solve this problem- and though criminals are a minority of the immigrant community, and immigrant communities are in fact safer, I agree heartily that prosecuring and or deporting criminals must be part of that.

       I wouldn't be opposed to legislation like the Dream-Act if pro illegal alien activists would concede to the deportation of others unlawfully in the United States. Others like gang bangers, rapists, child molesters, drug dealers, drunk drivers, murders, etc. It seems to me that these activists are pushing for an ALL OR NOTHING agenda. Sadly, this is at the expense of bright and promising students.
