DELAWARE DREAM TEAM are students, educators, parents, and community members that advocate for the rights of immigrant youth, especially the passage of the DREAM Act.
What is the DREAM ACT:
The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act – Federal DREAM Act
The DREAM Act is essential because it finally creates a pathway for undocumented students to legalize their status.
Currently there is no line for such people who were brought to the United States as minors.
The DREAM Act would ensure that if a person meets the following criteria they will then be given a chance to FINALLY “get in line”:
– Entered the US prior to the age of 16;
-At least 5 years of presence in the US prior to Acts passage<
-Good moral character;
-High school diploma or GED; and
-A college degree or military service.
