What are the pros and cons of the Dream Act
For every pro there are also cons to the DREAM act and people who do not support it have found flaws in it that are keeping it from not being passed. Anti-Dreamers fear that by granting “amnesty” to immigrants that have already broken the law by entering illegally it would only encourage other people to cross illegally. In their “eyes, it offers an incentive to break the law” they say that because under this act their children will get permanent residency. They say that it would only push illegal aliens harder to get into the country to have their child apply for the DREAM act. From their perspective this would give immigrants the motive to come illegally so that they could provide a better life for their children. Since under the act the illegal immigrants will be eligible to get aid for school it would put them right next to legal students, which they say is unfair because they are essentially law breakers (pros and cons of the DREAM act, n.d).
