Dream Act was introduced in 2001 in US Senate and reintroduced at least 21 times-LawLogix.com...(#1 priority of entire US political class is open borders. This guarantees permanent flow of slave labor from Mexico. In 1984 Wall St. Journal advocated Constitutional amendment: "There shall be open borders" (And if you don't like it you're racist))

7/4/1984, "In Praise of Huddled Masses," Wall Street Journal Editorial. "If Washington still wants to “do something” about immigration, we propose a five-word constitutional amendment: There shall be open borders." (scroll down)

"The Initial DREAM Act S.1291 (2001)"

"The Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act (S.1291) legislation was introduced in 2001 as a bipartisan bill in the Senate. The legislative goal was to provide a means for undocumented immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children to gain a pathway to permanent legal status; provided those individuals achieved certain milestones, including:
  • Attending or graduating from an institution of higher learning;
  • Be of a certain age to apply;
  • Be physically present in the U.S. for a certain number of years;
  • Have good moral character; and,
  • Not have violated other immigration laws
Individuals who would have qualified under the DREAM Act are often referred to as “DREAMers.” The term has been used to define individuals in the U.S. who were brought to the country at an early age without documentation but have assimilated to U.S. culture and have been educated by U.S. school systems.

The Senate bill 1291 failed to pass the Senate during the 107th Congress. However, in subsequent years, legislators have introduced numerous “DREAM Act” bills.  There have been at least 21 subsequent bills attempting to pass a form of relief for DREAMers since its initial introduction in 2001:

  • 2003 – DREAM Act of 2005 (S.2075), stuck in committee review

While Congress debates issues regarding comprehensive immigration reform, the Department of Homeland Security has implemented the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Program, effective August 15, 2012, in hopes of providing some form of temporary relief to the DREAMers in the U.S. You can read more about the DACA Program here. 

The DACA Program mirrors many of the requirements first proposed by Senators in the DREAM Act of 2001. As legislation around this issue evolves, LawLogix will continue to provide more information to our readers."

7/4/2001, "Recent testimony by Mr. Roy Beck before the House Judiciary Committee has thoroughly documented the failure of The Executive Branch to enforce U.S. immigration laws or to assist communities heavily impacted by illegal immigrants. This dereliction of duty has risen to a level that a growing portion of the U.S. population views as treasonous. Mr. Beck offers a number of constructive suggestions that could bring about rapid reversal of this dangerous state of affairs." 7/4/2001, "Wall Street Journal Needs to Open Its Eyes, Not Border," by Stuart H. Hurlbert, Professor of Biology and Director, Center for Inland Waters, San Diego State University, San Diego, Calif.
