What doesn't sit right with me is....
"it would give these "dreamers" the ability to apply and do things legally".
They always had the ability to do things legally. Since the beginning, they could have been trying to obtain legal status, instead they haven't. The most common thing I hear is "all the red tape.. no point in trying".
Meh... All I can do is throw my hands in the air and say.... Now THAT's the reason why the country is on a decline. Too many people want a handout and sadly, they get it. Meanwhile, the people who don't and do an honest work for a living end up paying for it.
You want to live here legally? Do something about it. Apply for legal status like everyone else.
Awe damn... Too late. Times up!

If they arrived here as children. This is then their home?
Political based members can cover the rest...

"House Speaker Paul Ryan says he wants to reach a compromise with Democrats on young immigrants but seeks "the right kind of interior and border enforcement" in exchange."
Can someone enlighten me, regardless of which side of the political fence you are on, I can't see how a compromise wouldn't be a really good thing. From what I have read so far, it would give these "dreamers" the ability to apply and do things legally. How can that be wrong in anyone's book?

I actually agree to ending birth citizenship, all across the board. Meaning even your and my children could not be citizens at birth. They would be civilians and must earn their citizenship through service.
Service, guarantees citizenship!
The Israeli model works, you serve and you have a greater love for your nation.
