Immigration is an issue that I have been seeing pop up a lot lately. It is an extremely controversial topic but nonetheless one that needs to be addressed.
I think that we should pass the DREAM act. It is a no brainer really. For those of you who don’t know, the DREAM act if passed will give
citizenship to illegal alien students who are of good moral character IF they complete two years in the military or two years in an institute of higher learning (college). U.S.
Now think about it. This will help us out much more than it will hurt us. First of all, it gives these students a chance to go to college and contribute to society which many of them are willing to do. And even if they do not wish to do this, they can join the
military for two years. Without the DREAM act, they will continue to work as illegal aliens and not pay a cent in income tax. Isn’t it much better to actually put them to good use? U.S.
I am curious to see what you guys think about this. Do you approve of the DREAM act or oppose it?
I also think we should make the process of becoming a legal immigrant for adults much easier. One of the reasons why so many people never register to be a citizen is due to the sheer amount of paperwork, high cost, and long amount of time that it takes. It should be much easier than this, that way more illegal immigrants will be encouraged to become legal.
