Unauthorized Alien Student: Issues and 'DREAM Act' Legislation
DIANE Publishing, 2011 - 13 pages
Supporters of comprehensive immigration reform have urged the Pres. and Congress to pursue reform legislation. While legislative action on comprehensive reform does not appear likely during the remainder of the 111th Congress, there may be an effort to enact a measure, referred to as the ¿DREAM Act,¿ to enable certain unauthorized alien students to legalize their status. Unauthorized aliens in the U.S. are able to receive free public educ. through high school. Contents of this report: Intro.; Estimates of Potential DREAM Act Beneficiaries; Higher Educ.
