Does the ‘DREAM Act’ Have a Chance?

By Mary Ann Zehr — May 06, 2009 1 min read

The Chronicle of Higher Education has published an analysis of the prospects of the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors, or “DREAM,” Act, which was reintroduced in Congress this spring and would provide a path to legalization for undocumented students who graduate from U.S. high schools. ImmigrationProf Blog notes that the article will be free to nonsubscribers to the publication for a few days.

The article says there are “plenty of lawmakers who fiercely oppose the bill,” but it “stands a good chance.”

A version of this news article first appeared in the Learning the Language blog.
