The DREAM Act

The DREAM Act is a federal bill in both the House of Representatives and the Senate granting certain students without legal documents, temporary legal residency and to work towards permanent legal residency.

Passage of policies such as those contained in the DREAM Act is a logical next step for students, given passage of HB 1079 in 2003, which allows undocumented students to pay in-state tuition at our state colleges and universities, and in 2012, temporarily deferring action on deporting certain undocumented students and provide them with work permits.

The problem remains, however, even with college degrees, the valuable contributions these high achieving students will make cannot fully be realized until they're granted legal residency.

LEAP encourages and will continuously work for the United States Congress to approve policies similar to the DREAM Act.
