Transcript: GROUP FIVE Nicole Calcutta J.P Dulude Austin Holt Claudia Cabrera It is legislation that would allow young people who came to the United States illegally before they turned sixteen and attended U.S. schools to apply for conditional legal permanent residency. What is the D.R.E.A.M Act? An opinion poll conducted by Opinion Research Corporation using a national sample of 1008 adults found the following public support for the DREAM Act Strongly Favor: 51% Not so Strongly Favored18% Total: 70% for Dream Act Strongly Oppose: 6% Not So Strongly Oppose: 18% Total Oppose: 25% Requirements Entry to the United States before the age of sixteen Continuous presence in the United States for at least five years Good moral character Admission to an institution of higher education in the United States, or a U.S. high school diploma or general education development certificate. The Dream Act fulfills the parent’s principle reason for breaking the law in the first place. The Dream Act would touch off an even greater wave of illegal immigration. The Dream Act absolves illegal aliens of their fundamental responsibilities as parents. The absence of a reward or benefit is not the same as punishment. Adults have the obligation to do the right thing, even if their parents have done the wrong thing. One blogger wrote... The California DREAM Act grants students who meet AB 540 criteria the chance to apply for and receive non-state funded scholarships for public colleges and universities. It also allows students who meet AB 540 criteria to apply for and receive state-funded financial aid such as institutional grants, community college fee waivers, Cal Grant and Chafee Grant. "I think people are just mad to see the people who come to this country do much better in it than the people born here. Have we all forgotten that this country was brought up by immigrants? That the British came and stole the land from the Native Americans AND the Mexicans? People around the world look to the U.S. as a land of prosperity where dreams come true because that is the message that the U.S. puts out and by sending [illegal immigrants] back to where they came from is failing ourselves. I support the DREAM Act all the way. Give the people who come in this country what they are looking for..." It provides residents who came to the United States illegally as children. These young people were never given the option to enter the United States legally because the decision to move to this country was made by their parents or other adults.The DREAM Act would give these children the opportunity to take corrective measures to obtain legal immigration status. Governor Jerry Brown signed the California Dream Act in July of 2011. The Governor said "At the end of the day, if we're going to continue as a powerful, equal-opportunity society, we're going to have to invest in our people." WHY IT IS NECCESSARY Those Against

Dream Act

Transcript: Who And Where The Dreamers Are? These youth have lived in the United States for most of their lives and want nothing more than to be recognized for what they are, Americans. Why Should they pass the Dream Act? A lot of them where bought here by there parents it wasn't their chose to come and everyone deserves the right to have a chance. Qualifications Must have entered the United States before the age of 16 (i.e. 15 and younger) Must have been present in the United States for at least five (5) consecutive years prior to enactment of the bill Must have graduated from a United States high school, or have obtained a GED, or have been accepted into an institution of higher education (i.e. college/university) Must be between the ages of 12 and 35 at the time of application Must have good moral character Will the Dream Act help students who have not yet graduated high school? Those who have not graduated high school, obtained a GED or have not been accepted into college will be able to stay in this country and not be deported if they are enrolled full-time in primary or secondary school and are 12 years of age or older. Once the student has completed high school or obtained a GED, they will then be eligible to apply for Conditional Permanent Residency. When will the Dream Act pass? The DREAM Act legislation has not passed yet. This means that you cannot yet apply. Every congressional session they hear says the same thing - "This is your year! The DREAM Act will pass!" So far, it hasn't happened. They have grown to understand that this will be our year if and only if we take the future into our own hands and pressure our legislators to address the issue by making the DREAM Act bill into a law. YES ON DREAM ACT THANKS FOR WATCHING ***CREDITS*** Norris Clara Morris Efforts have been made to pass the DREAM Act since 2001. The DREAM Act passed the full Senate in May 2006 as part of the Comprehensive Immigration Reform Act of 2006 (CIRA); however, Congress did not pass CIRA. The DREAM Act was then incorporated into the 2007 Kennedy-Kyl comprehensive immigration reform bill (S.1639) and also attached to the FY2008 Department of Defense Authorization Bill (SA.2237); however, it was not passed in either case. The DREAM Act was then introduced as a stand-alone bill in the fall of 2007, but was similarly defeated. COLLEGE Over three million students graduate from U.S High school every year.Most get the opportunity to test their dreams and live their American lives.However a group of approximately 65,000 youth do not get this opportunity there smeared with there illegal immigrant title.

Transcript: Impacts on Education Some argue it would encourage and even reward illegal immigration Providing state schools with added financial support to offset the costs of the DREAM Act would avoid the fiscal costs at the state and local level, but would shift the costs to federal taxpayers Have proof of having arrived in the U.S. before age 16 Proof of residence in the U.S. for at least 5 consecutive years since their date of arrival If male, have registered with the Selective Service Be between the ages of 12 and 35 at the time of bill enactment Graduated from an American high school, obtained GED, or been admitted to an institution of higher education Be of good moral character Immigrants who show moral integrity Could be seen as unfair to those who legally gained citizenship On average each illegal immigrant who attends a public institution will receive a tuition subsidy from taxpayers of nearly 6,000 for each year he or she attends school, for a total cost of $6.2 billion a year Immigration in the News Giving opportunities to students who may not have chosen to come to U.S. illegally What is the DREAM Act? Pros Incentive for young, illegal immigrants to obtain higher education Stipulations Cons Equal opportunities to illegal students that are striving for higher education Purpose: To provide conditional permanent U.S. residency to undocumented citizens of good moral character who graduate from U.S. high schools and are seeking higher education. It is projected that 1 million illegal immigrants will eventually enroll in public institutions as a result of the DREAM Act. A legislative proposal first introduced to the Senate in 2001 Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Does not provide any incentive for undocumented citizens to obtain citizenship Increases the amount of students but could also increase the amount of teachers needed, thus creating jobs in the education field. Discussion The DREAM Act Advocates feel young immigrants have as much to offer the future of America as any other citizen or legal resident


Transcript: A DREAM (Act) Deferred MELTING POT A place where immigrants of different cultures or races form an integrated society. Anti-Immigration Conflict? Americans should be more cautious about who and how many they allow into the country "Anti-Immigration Laws" to limit the number of immigrants Arizona State Laws on Immigration : aimed to identify, prosecute, and deport illegal immigrants The law states that failure to include immigration documents when asked may lead to detainment and deportation. Justification? The Governor of Arizona defended the law by saying: "This policy represents another tool for our state to use as we work to solve a crisis we did not create and the federal government has refused to fix." So what has the federal government done about Comprehensive Immigration Reform? federal government has made no major headway in comprehensive immigration reform in the past 10 years George W. Bush promised comprehensive reform during his 8 years in office, but was never produced due to a division in his party Similarly, President Obama has also promised for comprehensive reform, but there has not even been a vote in Congress on a comprehensive bill Obama's "Down Payment" on Comprehensive Immigration Reform? DREAM ACT So what is the DREAM Act? The DREAM Act, formerly known as the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, was introduced to provide ELIGIBILTY for undocumented students to enter higher education AND a pathway to legal residency and eventually U.S. citizenship for undocumented students who were brought to the U.S. when they were 15 or younger. Who is it for? Who would it most impact? Nearly 65,000 undocumented students are denied the eligibility for higher education or to enlist in the army. As mentioned in the video, the DREAM Act would make the biggest impact on undocumented students who have grown up on the U.S. since they were brought here as a child, and have known no other country as their home. Some of these students do not even know abou their undocumented status until they reach adulthood and realize that they cannot apply to college despite having the credentials. What are the conditions? must have entered the U.S. before the age of 16 must be between the ages of 12 and 35 at the time of application must have good moral character must meet at least one of the following criteria: Graduated from a 2 yr. college or certain vocational colleges or studied for at least 2 years towards a B.A. or higher degree, OR Served in the U.S. armed forces for at least 2 yrs. DREAM Act would alter the current law in 2 major ways: First, it would remove a federal provision that discourages states from offering in-state tuition to undocumented students on the basis of their legal status Secondly, the DREAM Act would allow immigrant students who have grown up in the U.S. to apply for temporary legal status and eventually obtain permanent status PROs: Opportunity to further education, so students are more likely to stay off the streets, become involved in their communities, increase their quality of life, and become upstanding citizens With the knowledge that higher education is possible, undocumented students are more likely to graduate high school and contribute to a more skilled workforce which would make U.S. a better international competitor More upstanding citizens would result in a greater tax base for increased tax revenue. Higher education often correlates with higher salaries, so undocumented students would have more disposable income that would help stimulate the economy. U.S. would be adhering to its founding principles of encouraging and accepting diversity and allow immigrants to live the “American Dream” Rewards hard work and good moral character Fairness – students should not be punished for an action made by their parents Increase military enrollment numbers CONs: Amnesty “chain migration” Requires the federal government to stretch limited educational and state resources on benefits meant for citizens Unfair to offer undocumented students in-state tuition when citizens who are out of state are required to pay substantially higher tuition fees Takes away opportunities for students who are citizens by allotting admission space and financial aid to undocumented students Undocumented students may be unprepared academically and unaware of opportunities like the DREAM Act. In other words, critics say the DREAM Act would be futile How would DREAM Act implementation affect the U.S? would clearly affect some states more than others, because 3/4 of the potential beneficiaries live in just 10 states the college enrollment practices and tuition policies also vary from state to state, so this may be difficult to standardize in accordance with the DREAM Act has the potential to make the U.S. become the leader in education by educating people who want to be here and who want to give back to their country only about 13,000 undocumented students are likely to enroll in college the following


Transcript: Create 1.4 million new jobs Minors who were illegally brought to the U.S. by their parents as children and grew up knowing only the U.S. as their home. Are not criminals. They are DREAMERS because they meet all of the prerequisites that the DREAM Act asks for (high school diploma, NOT a GED; clean criminal record). Want to be contributing members of society. DREAMERS are aspiring athletes, artists, engineers, surgeons, doctors, teachers... The DREAM Act will only benefit the current generation of alien minors. The DREAM Act will not benefit anyone who arrived in the U.S. five years before its enactment, nor will it benefit anyone who arrives after the enactment. DREAMERS MYTHS DREAM Act DREAMERS will not "take" jobs from Americans. On the other hand, DREAMERS will contribute so much to our economy, they will support the creation of 1.4 million jobs. The way in which we can expect to see this money flow goes as follows: As graduates earn their degrees, they earn higher salaries (approx. $148 bil.), which means a larger amount of taxes taken from their paychecks, supporting the $10 billion in federal tax revenues. Add a total of $329 billion to the economy by 2030 Politicians and American citizens believe that passing the DREAM Act will encourage a bigger wave of illegal immigration. The DREAM Act would be beneficial to our country. The DREAM Act will not only benefit the lives of these eager-to-be-Americans. It will benefit the country's economy, and federal government. Let's stop this hate towards children who were brought here with no fault of their own. Let's stop making them pay for mistakes they did not make. Let's pass the DREAM Act and help our country enjoy millions of jobs, billions of dollars in tax revenue, and billions in direct and induced gains. FACTS The "Double Bump" DREAM Act DREAM Act beneficiaries are already enrolled in school. U.S. schools will not see a significant increase in undocumented enrollments. beneficiaries must meet the following requirements Higher salaries means more spending money. These individuals now have more money to spend on cars, homes, and electronics. This induced spending is estimated to be $181 billion dollars. Under the age of 35 when the bill is enacted Arrived in the US before the age of 16 Lived in the US for five continuous years prior to the enactment of the bill Earned a high school diploma Good moral character (clean criminal record) Requirements Term coined in 2001 after the DREAM Act was first introduced in the Senate. CONCLUSION DREAM Act beneficiaries will overcrowd the already tightly packed classrooms. DREAM Act beneficiaries will take American jobs. Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors DREAM Act The DREAM Act is a legislation that was first introduced to the Senate in 2001. Its purpose is to grant residency and eventually citizenship to alien minors who were brought to the United States as children. 2.1 MILLION POSSIBILITIES 2.1 MILLION CONTRIBUTORS 2.1 MILLION STUDENTS 2.1 MILLION DREAMERS Gain the federal government $10 billion in tax revenues
