Only U.S. citizens are entitled to any government support such as soscial services and medical care, but the DREAM act is not intended for U.S. citizens, but the illegals who have come here as children. To date, we have paid for their education and it makes sense for the U.S. to cash in on their education and allow them to have residency here. The DREAM Act are for those who ar eattending college or join the military - so the numbers are quite small.Why did they wait for our country to pass some kind of legislation when they could have applied for citizenship long ago? Could it be because they will lose they freebies from the taxpayers as they continue to get social services,free medical care and education. This country needs to wake up and quit rewarding criminal aliens and take card of it's own citizens.
At any rate, it doesn't seem that it will pass, especially when we are suffering from high unemployment that will likely be with us for some time to come.
