This bill would provide certain illegal and deportable alien students who graduate from US high schools, who are of good moral character, arrived in the U.S. illegally as minors, and have been in the country continuously and illegally for at least five years prior to the bill's enactment, the opportunity to earn conditional permanent residency if they complete two years in the military or two years at a four year institution of higher learning.
The students would obtain temporary residency for a six year period. Within the six year period, a qualified student must have "acquired a degree from an institution of higher education in the United States or [have] completed at least 2 years, in good standing, in a program for a bachelor's degree or higher degree in the United States," or have "served in the uniformed services for at least 2 years and, if discharged, [have] received an honorable discharge."
Military enlistment contracts require an eight year commitment, with active duty commitments typically between four and six years, but as low as two years.
"Any alien whose permanent resident status is terminated [according to the terms of the Act] shall return to the immigration status the alien had immediately prior to receiving conditional permanent resident status under this Act

Basically Dream act would provide a path towards legalization for illegal immigrants who were brought to the United States before they were 16, graduated high school or obtained GED, and who have resided in the U.S. for 5 continuous years and they must be under 29 years old.
The bill would require them to finish 2 years of college or serve 2 years in United States military in order for them to be eligible to become permanent U.S. residents.
I support this bill.
