DREAM Act not a dream anymore.
I'm finally hearing about the DREAM Act in the media. It's expected to be introduced in less than two weeks. Woo hoo! When it's brought up, will our congressmen notice the actual support this legislation has? I mean it's a very interesting issue, because unlike other's, it's main supports are like hostages that won't try to make a move towards safety, since they fear for the worst that could happen (deportation). In other words, they wouldn't physically see all the supporters out showing the support. And of course like any other bill it has it's opposition. Once in awhile I come across a comment that makes a good point on why all these students should just go back to their original country and apply for legal staus in that manner. For one, if it were that easy I believe most would, and two, it's easy for someone to say who doesn't such a burden on their hands. I think it's hilarious how far some conservatives express their hatred towards immigration. While posting comments they capitalize words like "ILLEGEL IMAGRITION, DEY TUK ERR JERBS!!!, ILEGUL IS ELIGAL!!, etc." and yes that's how they spell too. Well come on guys, how does someone take your job? Does one leave it alone for one day to not find it there the next? Instead of complaining one should compete since this is a competative market and that's what all of us, DREAMers, are doing.
