DREAM act is not amnesty.
Amnesty grants you citizenship for nothing, however DREAM act requires persons that entered the U.S. before 15 and are younger than 30 to attend college for 2 years (paying out-of state tuition) or serve in the U.S. Army for 2 years, additionally they would be required to pay numerous fees. Also they would only become conditional-non immigrants...not even permanent residents, they would have to wait 13 years before they become PR.
They also won't be able to sponsor family and they would also not qualify for any federally funded welfare program or grants.
As a United States Citizen, and taxpayer I proudly support the Dream Act, because it's a bill about fairness.edit on 12/18/2010 by muse7 because: (no reason given)
When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic.

If you do not follow their belief system, you are an idiot.
By the way, I would not mind if 500 million people immigrated here, as long as not ONE DIME of my money when to them.

I agree with you though, its not like we are a country that's founded on immigration.
With how great everything has been going, we should be so lucky to have people want to even come her in my opinion.
