Eric Balderas' Story Pros and Cons (cc) photo by medhead on Flickr Use as amnesty How it will benefit the economy The DREAM Act would benefit around 65,000 students every year who graduate high school.
It will add many people to the workforce and new legal workers will also mean legal taxpayers and more revenue.
According to a recent UCLA study students that would be impacted by the DREAM Act could add between 1.4 to 3.6 trillion in taxable income over the course of careers.
According to the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office, the DREAM Act in its current form will cut the deficit by $1.4 billion and increase government revenues by $2.3 billion over the next 10 years. How will it benefit the military Immigrants will now bring all their newborns illegally knowing that this act could help them
There's a cut of date for which years you must be born in order for this act to help you. It will not help those newly entered illegal minors, only those in the U.S right now.
They are a threat by competing with us for college admission and jobs.
According to the National Immigration Law Center ,most undocumented students are likely to have zero impact on admission rates of native-born students, since most will be attending community college since it has open enrollment.
It will be more expensive because we will now have to pay for their education and federally fund them
The act will not allow them to use any federal programs to pay for college. The only benefit they get is they get to pay in state tuition. And act clearly specifies if they are dependent on government they will be disqualified from the act. Myths vs Facts Daniela Palaez is a Colombian immigrant who was brought to the U.S at age 4.
