What is the Dream Act

The Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act, also known as the Dream Act, is a bi-partition bill introduced to Congress in 2001 and reintroduced in 2009 by Utah (R) Senator Orion Hatch and Illinois (D) Senator Richard Durbin created to help youths brought the United States by undocumented parents as children who are now graduating from High School not only find a path to citizenship for themselves, but also be allowed to continue their education into college and beyond.

To qualify for the DREAM Act an applicant must adhere to several very strict guidelines that include the following:
-The applicant must have entered the United States prior to their 16th birthday.
-The applicant must have been in the United States for at least 5 consecutive years prior to the bill passing.
-The applicant must have graduated from High School, obtained a GED or currently be enrolled in College, a Trade School or another type of Institution for Higher Learning.
-The applicant must currently be 30 and under at the time they are applying.
-The applicant must have good moral standing (no previous or current convictions).

With all of those requirements met and The DREAM Act is passed (its currently one vote short) a person will be granted a temporary, conditional allowance to remain in the Untied States for up to 6 years provided they follow the next set of guidelines.

    My husband was brought into the country at he age of 3. he’s currently in an immigration prison and scheduled to be deported next week. He is 29 years old, no diploma or GED, and no felony criminal history. How can this law help of hurt our case.

    • Balbir Arora says:

      Amy, your husband meets all guidelines set forth under Dreams Act except one that he is not being either high school diploma or GED which doesn’t make a sense to me. Have your husband enroll either into high school diploma or private GED courses and apply under Dreams Act hopefully it will work for him.

        hi.. what about my case, i came here when i was 16 almost 17 but i did graduated from high school i got everything . my only problem is that i came a little late !! do you think they can give me a chance /?

        • John McGinn Jones says:

          I think they should bend the rules for you as well as everyone else in the USA. I don’t want to pay my taxes, do you think they should bend the rules and not make me pay?

      • poeple says:

        Wow that is like so horrible.

    • hidden says:

      Your husband can still apply without going to school. There is a special exception and I have cut and pasted it to this post.
      (2) HARDSHIP EXCEPTION-
      (A) IN GENERAL- The Secretary of Homeland Security may, in the Secretary’s discretion, remove the conditional status of an alien if the alien–
      (i) satisfies the requirements of subparagraphs (A), (B), and (C) of paragraph (1);
      (ii) demonstrates compelling circumstances for the inability to complete the requirements described in paragraph (1)(D); and
      (iii) demonstrates that the alien’s removal from the United States would result in exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to the alien or the alien’s spouse, parent, or child who is a citizen or a lawful permanent resident of the United States.

      • Angelo says:

        Hidden, where did you obtained the exception hardship. Could you please provide the link. My wife came to the US when she was 16 and 3 months old. I am wondering if there is an exception for that age?
        Thank you

        • John says:

          Hi @Angelo. Did you ever get a reliable answer to your question? My friend came to the U.S. 2 days after her 16th bday and we would also like to know if there is any exception.

          • neckface says:

            your lack of respect and just plain selfishness is quite repulsive. must really suck to have so much hate over your own kind(humans). but i know what this, its attention seeking only because you don’t receive attention at home, yet your living the easy life. while us aliens who like humans have the right to live an equal life are made to be in our own home aliens and have to fear leaving the ones we love just because we papers. so there you go, you got your fame but don’t worry we aliens will now be able to hire people like you to fix our toilets.

          • colombiana says:

            you do know that most of work that immigrants do are a big portion of this countries economy, and if this “cheap workers” as you referred were to get deported , this country would most likely go bankrupt, and that is only because this people are more capable to do labor work that most asswipes like you dont do. :)<3

        • Felicia says:

          Your reply made you no better than that person. First of all, All White American’s are not uneducated, living on welfare and do drugs. There are A LOT OF AMERICAN’S WHO STOOD UP FOR YOUR RIGHT TO BECOME AN AMERICAN CITIZEN. So I really do think for you to lump everyone into one pool is about as ignorant as would be for American’s to lump all Immigrates into one pool. People who think like you, is why we have so much racialism in our world. So much violence!! God created all of the Human Race, one is no better than the other. Yes, some are financially better off but in the grand scheme of things, we are all “Just Human’s and are all created equally” I hope that you change your view’s. May God Bless you and your family

            To me it’s only two :
            Intelligent and mediocre.
            A lot of mediocre Mexicans and a lot of intelligent Mexicans and so with white ppl.

            Can’t we all just get along? Love and be loved?
            God Bless us all, and God Bless America!!!

          • Nice USA Citizen says:

            I agree with your comment. Thanks You Felicia.
            There’s one thing I do not understand. Why do Aliens come here to the USA or Canada. or even Europe? Why can’t they stay in the country where they were born, and use their SNARTS to BETTER their own country? Change their own country for the best. Do what us “White’s” (as they call us) did when our founding fatherw came here. If our Founding Fathers, Prayed- seeked God – THEY can do the same. America at one time was a slow growing country. Indians weren’t doing NOTHING to improve this land. so OUR FOUNDING FATHERS SACRAFICED a Lot for us. (I am White-Spanish) & a Christian- I do not want to make anyone feel Bad, or Hurt Feelings. However, every country speaks English – why can’t Mexicans & Central – South Americans do the same? Ask us for teachers from here (USA) to help them learn the English Language. Help their own people. and with God’s help SUCCEED. Granted we are all human Beings – Granted God loves all of us. And Granted if God helped THE WHITES’s – HE TOO will help them.And we could be good neighbors and help each other. NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE WITH GOD “OUR CREATOR”

          Well said Stephany! well said… :)

          • Liss says:

            Its quite sad to see our kind (humans) go at each others throat over stupid reasons; rather than disrespecting each other be proud to live in the US, whether you are ilegal or not, because at the end of the day we are all equal.

          • marge says:

            What about all the Americans who have worked so hard to earn and maintain their citizenship? Seemsto me this is almost reverse discrmination. It is unfortunate that children who were initially brought here illegally were brought here due to circumstances beyond thier control. However.that is a risk their parents took when they brought their children here illegally in the first place. They broke the law to begin with. If we as Americans break the law, we are not given a break. Why should illegal immigrants be granted special treatment when they came here illegally in the first place??? I don’t get it…..

          • H... says:

            “Nice USA citizen” what you are saying sounds wonderful if the world actually worked that way. Unfortunately, what our “founding fathers” did on the way to building up this country was to steal land from others…mostly Mexican. Many of our now US territory was stolen from Mexico. That is one of the sad things about the USA. We take what we want from
            Other countries to make ours more profitable. I actually wrote an essay regarding this issue during my undergraduate studies. However, one of the great things this country does have is a justice system and “equal” rights. Most people come here because it is nearly impossible
            For them to be successful in their own country. Remember that USA is unique in the manner that it actually has a system in place where people can educate themselves and improve the world they love in. That is not the case for many other countries such as Mexico. People risk their lives to come here because that means that their family might be able to eat, they can send their children to PUBLIC school (because unlike here, public school isn’t free so no money means no school). And let’s not forget our own backgrounds! Where are we from? How did our family get here….look up your family history and see where they came from and try to find the answer why? Why did our ancestors come here? Was it because their home countries provided them with the opportunity to succeed? Or a good education? Or a way to simply feed themselves? Probably not or else America would not be what our “founding fathers” built. Unless you are native Americans….we all come from a family of immigrants.

        • M.o. says:

          Hahaha you tell him and those others that decide to not comprehend what we as Mexicans are suffering. However, keep your cool and don’t use fowl language, you and I will always be much better than these hillbillies :)

          • Heather says:

            Ok, I wasn’t planning on adding to this, but using the term “hillbillies” isn’t right to me. That is a way of life that shouldn’t be thought of as a bad thing. “Hillbilly” and “redneck” are the same thing, and I consider myself one, it’s just a southern, down-home, way of life that other’s don’t understand so they decide to “knock” it and make it into a bad thing. Being “amish” isn’t bad, neither is being a “hillbilly”. and to all of the people that are commenting in an uproar about things that urk them, calm down. I’m not a fan of people not speaking English in AMERICA when it is the primary language we speak, but I’m not going to go out on a rampage about it in a completely unrespectful way. Specially since, the reason I get so upset about it is because I find it disrespectful, esspecially when people decide to not even attempt to learn the language. There are all different points to look at, and views to consider, I just hope this act has considered them all and come out with a good outcome.

        • Tom says:

          I don’t know what the deal is there are only two types of immigrants legal and illegal it’s cut and dry if you haven’t came to the US legally then you are an illegal and all of this laws giving special treatment for a criminal group it’s a slap in the face to all of the LEGAL immigrants. Period and I don’t care if you are Mexican swedish Jewish or any other illegal ILLEGAL is ILLEGAL.

        • vinny says:

          actually im white and i work with all mexicans at la fogata. i work harder than every single one of them. so mexicans new generation are some bums and none of them go to college. cause their soooo lazy. so mexican girl dont ever judge a hole race its not right.

          Stephany, in fact you are right many mexican students in my highschool are in the top 8% of my class. And students i know who judge us mexicans will never enroll to a higher education but they will for sure keep thinking that they are better.

        • kenny says:

          shut up! first, im not white but you sound just like those “white trash”s right now. this act is gona hurt about 97% of the mex. pop. most of you have records and cant get a diploma anyway. and yea you mexicans do labor hard and long just like my simple minded dog. makes me mad my parents, 30 yrs ago, had to work and go thorough the long hard process for citizenship in this country not just by obtaining a ged or diploma and being a “good boy”

          This is not a matter of race all people can be bad no matter what color u are theres good people in every color. I dont mind anyone coming over here to better thereself But do it the RIGHT WAY.. my uncle is mexican and im white but he did it the right way and OBTAINED a CITIZENSHIP please doin the wrong will only make ur life worse just do the right thing

        • Cai says:

          The people that act like that are no different then mexicans that act that way. It is not one race, it does not matter the race. It matters on what that ONE FUCKING PERSON decides to do with their life or their money. If they don’t want to make a big shot out of themselves then so be it. But no matter the race we can all act like idiots at some point in time and get what ever tattoo I so please. Thank you and goodbye

          There is a big difference between being here legally and illegally. l have no qualms with someone who follows the rules and enters this country the RIGHT way. Those who are willing to break the law and enter this country ILLEGALLY are probably willing to engage in some other illegal activities as well. We don’t need any criminals here, we have plenty already!

Why did you assume the guy was white he could of been black? If it wasn’t for the whites that fought the other whites to allow you to come here then you wouldn’t be here….The whites are being attack from all end so maybe that why we act the way we do. Because asshole like you. We give an inch and you fuckers run with it. We vote an Hispanic in to be part of our government system and you guys are destroying it. Pretty soon America will be just like Mexico you fuckers are doing a very good job.

          How dose that make you feel? I’m for one a hard worker trained and worked with Mexicans. Just so you know if you like America it was a system created by white men. We all live by the same rules and that is our Contusion. So before you go blaming the white man as a whole just remember you live by our rules.

          You are an idiot. The reasons mexicant’s are used for work is to drive the wages down. Which you fuckers come in and don’t pay any taxes, no business licensing, and collect welfare. You trash our communities wave a Mexican flag and bitch when REAL Americans try to tolerate your animal like behaviour. Enough is enough. The education you brag about having was aid for by the guy you just belittled. He probably had to drop out to compete with the lazy ass Mexicans. You can try to sell me on mexican’ts being hard working I have hired many and almost every single one were the laziest, slowest employees I have ever had. I do want to visit your world sometime though, sounds great. To bad I live in reality.

          Wait a second Stephany. What he said is stupid this is the land of the free and the home of the brave. We are all immigrants from somewhere but when you talk like that sounds like your just as bad as him. I am white never been on any govenment aid have no tattoos and don’t do any drugs. I think this act is a good start but we need even more reform. People that have been living here and in good standing deserve a chance regardless of age.

        • Kyle says:

          hey why don’t you just go back to where ever you came from and stop talking shit about people that were born here. i don’t like that all the god damn immigrants are able to come over here and collect welfare and get free schooling and shit that is totally wrong. they should be giving the schooling to people that were born here not some border crossing peace of shit that just wants free stuff!!

        • bamabych says:

          Are you kidding me with this shit?Mexicans are this biggest drain on America right now.So many getting food stamps and wic and never paid a damn dime in taxes…not to mention that they have their stupid mexican husbands working and not paying any taxes,but they can sure spend $100.’s every weekend buying beer and cigs that they cant even pronounce the name of.At least any american getting help from OUR AMERICAN GOVERNMENT has paid in taxes at some point ,so at least they deserve the help more than a family with 10 freaking illegal kids.You and all the people on here are whining oh,”do you think i can get help” wow why should our country pay for anything for you??? WE are the AMERICAN TAX PAYERS…anyone here that is not legal is breaking the law,and yet you’re still here.Not only are you still here,but you are asking for a hand out.Our country is not in good shape right now,and we are expected to take care of everyone else,just because they cant stand their own country.It’s crap and should not happen ever.

          • hgerm says:

            You don’t like how all of the illegal immigrants are a drain on society? Then provide them a path to become legal, contributing members of society!! That’s what the DREAM Act is; you realize this isn’t a forum on how to receive TANF or food stamps, right?

          • Fyi says:

            You cannot apply for food stamps when are an illegal that is a service provided to residents and citizens. You can request food stamps for your children regardless of your legal status if they are citizens. The WIC program is privately funded it is not subsudized by the government. For those who are worried because they believe they are supporting illegal immigrants you can sleep comfortably tonight. It is actually the other way around. Although a person is working illegally the government takes from their check what is due in taxes. Illegal immigrants will not receive social security benefits and they pay for it. Thanks to that money that is saved, social security benefits are still available. For those who are wondering I am an American citizen and in case you want to know my father was a resident and so was my grandfather. Please save your insults because my great grandfather had a passport and before that the U.S. was still Mexico. So give your opinion but first check your source. The Hispanics or Latinos or whatever you want to call yourself maybe you should learn a little about respect. If you plan to walk around this country calling people white trash, etc, you have a long road to travel. You want respect, then offer it to others in return without bringing race into the picture. We are here to stay, so everyone just needs to get along with each other because that is how you make a country stronger.

          If Mexicans are so smart and speak English fluently then why are there signs written in fucking Spanish ALL OVER Home Depot every time that I go inside? Why is the voter ballot also printed in Spanish? Why are the forms are the DMV in Spanish as well as English? Maybe it’s because very few Mexicans that come over to the US ever try to learn English, at least to a proficient level. Instead, you expect people to pander to your stupidity and waste tons of time, paper, and money on extra materials to accommodate your dumb asses.

          • Martha o says:

            Why argue and throw each other unnecessary racist comments when in reality, Mexicans had most of now United states of america and was unfairly taken away. perhaps you should all do some historical investigation and think before you write such hateful comments like that. And if you want to talk about spelling or grammar, everybody makes mistakes, English language is the hardest language to learn because of their “rules”. how about you guys get some books and become educated about what is going around “your land”.
            If you guys are so hurt because LATINOS( not just Mexicans) are taking over your education and jobs, you should take a look at the amount of people that are citizens of the U.S. they have a free education up to high school and cant even seem to take advantage of the opportunity.
            I live in south central,Los Angeles. Im undocumented and it saddens me that teens and even adults don’t take advantage of what is being given to them by their so love government but hate on Hispanics because we are trying to succeed in life?

        You are just reinforcing the stereotype that Americans are ignorant and selfish. Congrads on your contribution to society. Mexico is one of the nations that have historically been beaten down and the people still paying the consequences. Please watch the documentary Which Way Home and you will understand my point better. The dream act helps people who have overcome the odds and managed to get an education. People who have lived as an American.They would become taxpaying citizens. There is no question that there are not enouph jobs in our country. Please, think, does the blame lay on the people who are educating themselves and attemting betterment? I think more blame lies in the fact that people can work their fingers to the bone and still not have enouph meanwhile a fortunate very few make scandalus deals to lline thier pockets.

        1. thats? that’s*

        3. wear? Where*
        and oh God, I really do not have the time to explain to you all of your grammar errors. Very disappointing. People like you is the reason United States is falling behind in education compared to Europe and Asia. Ignorant. I highly doubt that the US will be able to function with all these immigrants doing what you white people should be doing instead of living of welfare… So please do us a favor if you do not have any good/validated information to share, do not comment.

      • nicole says:

        Wow. This site makes me extremely sad to see all of the hate and ignorance shown by BOTH Americans and Mexicans and whoever you are. I am an american and moved to a foreign country at the age of 22 to pursue my dream of learning a foreign language and culture. I went through so much red tape and after my 4 years spent there trying to get a work visa as a responsible, educated young woman can relate to how hard it is to be a foreigner in ANY country. I would however like to say that I learned that langauge FLUENTLY and recently moved back to the US AND found a job here that will utilize that skill. It deeply frustrates me and I find it completely disrespectful for ANY foreigner to move to ANY country and not learn that countries language. Look what I was able to accomplish? I do not think we should be so easy to give just anyone the right to citizenship or the ability to work in our country. I respect the country I was living in, in that they want to first and foremost help their citizens. It’s sad to say, but a lot of illegal immigrants or children of illegal immigrants (NOT JUST MEXICANS) become our fruit pickers, cleaners, gardeners, nail stylists and such. I myself as a foreigner worked EVEN harder than the citizens to prove myself and learn there language. I believe that any foreigner should do the same and have to work for their right to become a part of a country not their own. Unfortunately we rely on illegal immigrants or again, children of illegal immigrants to do the jobs that a lot of Americans are not willing to do – we rely on this! Sad but true!! Isn’t it better that we give immigrants the opportunity to learn English, work legally and pay taxes, and then they must pass a test and prove their fluency in English? Unless Americans are willing to do these jobs, help foreigners who are by making it easier for them to be legalized, PAY taxes, and make sure they care enough to learn English. Just my two cents as an educated american who knows what it is like to try to make it in a foreign country.

        Many USA citizens think that the Mexican people closs the border but what this people doesn’t understand that the border closs us .if you this people check the 1952 mad they will stop talking shh this land was one day Mexican and what I see now we are more Mexican in here and this land will be hours

      • Catherine Lewis says:

        Travis, Put yourself in the shoes of an immigrant, if you have the mental capacity to do so. How would you like to run into “you” and the hate “you” spew as you struggle your way out of abject poverty, struggle with a new language, struggle through high school, and struggle to find a job?

        Do you know any immigrants, personally? Have you taken the time to really know even one? I am a therapist and have worked with a wonderful young man for six years. He was near despair, almost ready to give up his dream of becoming a chemist, when he first came to me.

        I have never seen such a hard-working person in my entire 65 years. He studied day and night, had a tutor at the JC and another at night (at his expense), worked a part-time job, practiced and practiced, and practiced some more. His grades went from D’s and F’s to B’s and C’s. He became a U.S. citizen and graduated from the junior college. He is now studying at a university. He is of sound moral character and a strong work ethic. I am unbelievably proud of this young man. I have come to love him like a son; in fact, I would be proud if he were my son.

        One more thought, if I might. If you are not 100% Native American (Indian, so you know what I mean), your family tree, your ancestors who first came to America, were immigrants!

        So, Travis, before you speak so eloquently again about a group of people about which you know nothing, personally, hold your tongue – or your keyboard. And for heaven’s sake, will you please learn the English language?!

      • Betty says:

        Travis,I can understand your anger but you are not god to judge because you are not in there shoes,and talking about your moment!!!!let me tell you something,your family came from other country to,don’t forget this country belongs to the native american indians,and remember to!!many states of this country used to be part of the mexican country,get a book and educated your self,mexicans and native indians are not complaining for what immigrants like your family members did to them and land and country,yes this is the country of opportunities the golden dream,but one thing you don’t know is,they are illegal yes but the government give them a pin number like the SS # to file and pay taxes,yes some take advantage of the system like those women in welfare I don’t agree with the american system in my opinion,if they want kids they need to work and provide not just pop them like rabbits,but most of them do the harder work for minimum wages with out benefits and over time paid,I have seen it,last week my friend hire a contractor to do a concrete work and other things,the contractor is white and he had a lot of guys from el salvador and guatemala for him he was verbally abusing them slavering them for about $6 and hour from morning till dusk some people don’t realized how hard they work for almost nothing and they don’t complain like some white fox do,just think about one thing???what do you think it will happen??if all the illegal aliens are back from where ever they came from?? It will be no food at the restaurants all the people in the kitchen are immigrants no mater if the restaurant is chinese american italian japanese or other,it will be no fruits and vegetables at the markets to eat,no babysitters no house cleaners no gardeners no construction workers,are you going to work and do all the hard work they do??I am sure your answer is no,I think we are not in the old days where the KKK members sacrifice and haunted people because they believe they were better,we are all humans we all feel and have the same color blood in our bodies no matter what color or race we are on the end of the day we are going to die why hate??? I am going to tell you a story,,,I come here married to a us,citizen at the age of 16th my family had passed away I was orphan and I had no body my husband at the moment bring me here against my will,illegally I crossed the border with about 40 people we were only 3 females I was one of them I don’t know were we were but some american guys were hiding and they come to as with guns we were r
        ape and beat,and they stole what we had some got killed in cold blood they put a gun in my four head to kill me I really wanted to die after what they did to me,I begged them to do me the favor to take me out of my misery,but they didn’t,they were americans like you,who hate for no reason,who destroy lives with out thinking all the pain the cause,they started shooting at every body we started running I run non stop I wanted to see a immigration officer so bad to come and help me I enter a field full of trees if was very foggy I got lost I walked and walked I was alone I don’t know that happened to the rest of the people,I walked for so many days I ended some where in the desert I was hungry thirsty and very cold the sand was to deep it was very hard to walk many snakes one bite me in my middle finger I sucked the venom with my mouth I had very high fever and my hand was smelling very bad it was decomposing from the infection the days I walked lost I saw so many people who had died hopping to reach the american dream,and got lost and died,some people don’t realize why people come here our country’s are so corrupted the government give us no choice,I am sure if you had no food no job and kids to feed you will do the same to survive and save your kids from hunger,when I found a road a taxi stop and helped me and save my life,I told my husband what had happened he hated it me and beat me up,the time I stay with him I was rape by him and beat up till I passed out cover with blood,when I turned 18 I abandon him and move to the park I was homeless I had no body I was race in a good home with family values my uncle was the best president of mexico his name was lazaro cardenas,I never told any one this story but me a illegal alien I have saved many american lives I have a rare blood type and I am a regular blood donor and I give my red cells for people with cancer and I saved one life with my bone marrow that one little person is the son of a woman who hates mexican and illegal aliens just like you,I did it from the bottom of my heart with out getting paid for that,the question is,where is why americans didn’t save those lives???maybe we come here for a good purpose. But negative people like you won’t understand and never will I pray for people like you,I feel sorry for you

        at some point everyone was an immigrant why so racist?
        i was born in mexico brought when i was months old now I’m 20 high school graduate and still proudly i would say I’m mexican, yeah go ahead call me an alien, beaner, immigrant but at the end ill still be one proud mexican. why even waste my time talking about how stupid white people are or how filthy blacks are theres no point, the point is us the ”illegal immigrants” came here to succeed to work without any buts wiping the sweat off our foreheads to move forward with our families and even after working so many years still getting minimum wage some struggle with no complain…

        this page is full of racism comments mostly from teens which most likely have parents who own a company or a business that the majority or their workers are illegal immigrants or probably some older guy who pretty much has nothing else to do and talk smack to make himself proud of him n his miserable life while we move on and succeed…

      There are many advantages to becoming a resident under the DREAMER ACT (or Executive Order that bypasses Congress). For instance, no worry about being deported for two years (don’t fall for that. There are many people still here under the ‘temporary’ provisions of the last time this kind of ‘amnesty’ happened 20 years ago; so when you’re in, you’re in for good. Those government welfare and ‘assistance’ programs are much easier to get into if you are in the country legally. Good luck.

          he came to the U.S. when he was 14 years old. He went to elementary school, got that diploma but didnt go to high school because he had to help his mother economicly because he had 3 younger brothers and sisters. we have to children and I’m a U.S. citizen. lawyers have always told us he must have a visa or temporary permit to work in U.S. for me to apply for him. Will this new law be available for him, even if he didnt go to high school but did get to 8th grade.

      Over 8 million Latinos will qualify for a work permit. If we hit that, our latinos will get stronger. REAL NICE.

      Look Forward to America’s next civil war. WE ARE READY! The Politicins may tell you that you latino americans that you are safe and will be able to stay here, but truth be told…

      My ancestors, European Americans and the ancestors of the African Americans shed their blood to fight the mightiest nation on this earth at the time, The British Empire and we won. And despite our differences and hundreds of years of discontent, The European Americans and African Americans beat that empire down and if you Latinos think that you can come into OUR country and break the special bond that the Europeans and Africans have created over the past two-hundred years, you have another thing coming.

      Obama is a race trader. He and the Democrats have thrown every black person in this country under the bus just to get the vote of the next minority group that will soon trump you all.

      Anyone who votes for a man that separates us as Americans deserves to be deported themselves.

    • Lilly says:

      I don’t agree with deporting anybody that was brought here as a child and is now over the age 25. The parents were the one’s committing a crime, they were responsible for a minor not the minor being responsible for the parents and charged with a crime put on them once they turned of age. If they committed a serious offense they should be punished accordingly just like other Americans, they pretty much are if they were not raised in Mexico and have no clue what Mexico’s even like. How is it fair to send someone (especially the one’s that didn’t commit violent crimes) to another country with no money, no family, no friends and no where to go? To top it off most of them are hard working people with family that depend on them and little children that need them. I know plenty of Americans that deserve this kind of punishment why not send their asses away instead.

    • Teresa says:

      Please let him be deported. So sick of the flood of immigrants coming over for a free handout.

    • dark xopher says:

      So by that logic. If my parents robbed a bank when I was a child, or sold drugs. Then I should be able to keep that money. After all I didn’t steal it. Why should I be punished. If the parents bought a car with that money for me. Why should I have to give up my car. I’ll go even further if I was a minor I should even be able to help steal and keep the money. It was my parents mistake. This is such a horrible way of thinking. If he is twenty-nine that means he knowingly broke the law for over a decade. Why don’t we all just renounce our citizenship stay in the country, not pay taxes, get welfare, break any laws we want. If we get caught just tell them we are dreamers. Way to go. You must be so proud of marrying a criminal. Don’t even act like him being here is the only law he is breaking. If he works he is committing another crime, any way you look at it you married a criminal and a thief. Your parents must be proud.

      • Ann says:

        Okay seriously, your an idiot. People who have been here since they were a baby have NO IDEA what it is like to live in mexico or where ever they are from. They also probably have no family over there. If America is where they were raised, then they are just as american as me or you or anyone else here. If America is all they have ever known how do you expect them to live anywhere else? Have a fucking heart. Do you know the hardships people face on a daily basis living in mexico?? It is full of poverty and violence. America is by far a much more safe place to raise children and be successful, so why should a mother have to stay where she can’t afford to feed her children? I know a family that has been here for 19 years and they have worked their asses off to make a living here.

        • couragous12 says:

          If Mexico is so bad, wouldn’t it change if all the illegals went back, if all they know is America’s democracy and of course the entitlements that come with living here, let them go home and create the same nurturing environment there. Do they have no national pride at all that they want to come here and take over our country? I am not racist, I am a pragmatist. If I was brought here as a child and I knew what was going on in my country I would be chomping at the bit to get back there to change things, not hanging out here to suck as much entitlements as I could get from a foreign government. If the dedication and hard work is for real, wouldn’t that change the drug wars in Mexico, and the strife and economic woes? Do you care nothing for your own people? You can see our American history how we have fought for the underdog, and won. We’ve won freedoms for others, we’ve lost our sons and daughters fighting for others and this discussion is disgusting. If you came to this country illegally you are already a criminal here. If you have gleaned an education while you were here, take it home to educate your people and bring them out of the poverty and squaller that they live in. Sounds good, huh?

          • Not that simple says:

            Its not that simple. Here the government listens to its people but in Mexico the government is corrupted. Unlike here the government does not care for its people and its people does not do anything to change that. The population that does nothing is far greater than the population that gets sent or decides to go back. The ones that do return make their houses and take what they learned to their advantages but the economy is so bad that sometimes their skills can’t be put to work. Me, for example, I have been here since a baby and I was raised here and my customs are from here. I studied hard, completed my school, and have been a good ‘resident’ in the U.S. The only thing is that some people decide that WE are not worthy of this country of this living. But we have worked hard to get the little that we have. Yes, there are Mexican criminals but if you watch the news there is also a lot of “U.S citizen criminals as well” so that is no excuse for us to be treated in any bad way.

          • PROUDchicana says:

            “our country”; first off let me start by questioning why i’m even bothering replying to your ignorant comment. If you want to play the whole “this is our country” card you should look at who was here first: the Aztec and Mayas. This ancestral blood flows through our veins. Your ancestors came from a whole different continent. So, if you want us to “go back”, TAKE YOUR OWN ADVICE.

        • dark xopher says:

          So for 19 years they evaded taxes. Kudos. Real model citizens. Let’s roll out the red carpet. You don’t like your country fix it. Don’t come drag ours down to the level of the country you left. If they love their old country so much why are they here. You say they love America ten respect America’s laws not just the ones they agree with. Wow. Such backward ass thinking. Then you have the nerve to act like you are morally superior. Ha ha ha.

      • Ann says:

        ALSO, how do you think this “country” was brought about?? IMMIGRANTS sailed over here and built this country. And religion? thats what you care about?? What exactly is religion? Its bullshit. It is something that the people in power made up to have control over your mind and so you think that explains how we got here. But look around.. if you really think a man in the sky built this place in 7 days your a complete dumbass that is letting them brainwash you just like they want.

      • Mindyourown28 says:

        Don’t be an ignorant dumbass . First of all you redneck piece of shit learn how to spell. You are telling us to learn how to speak ENGLISH ?! Well don’t be a bitch an learn how write your own language PENDEJO..
        Well I hope you have a great night though (:

      • rubi says:

        well do you not know how to read i’m pretty sure all this people that are asking questions speak perfect English i bet its even better then yours “bcuz”? really and your trying to tell us to learn the language. You must really hate yourself for not understanding what we are trying to accomplish not even understanding your own religion let me explain we are all equal God made this earth and its his do not try to claim property that is not yours and never will be. We are just trying to make a better leaving provide for our family and this country that we will treat like its our country because we were practically born here raised here we lived our life’s here and fell in love more and more with our flag. I would stand up and said the pledge every morning with honor i understood the even though i wasn’t born here i was to die here.

        travis, did u go to college

      • Rosangela Caixa says:

        Did you ever go to school? Do you speak English? Your writing is HORRIBLE! That is the problem here. They give diplomas to illiterates who think they are something just because they were born on the land. Do you know your heritage? I can only start to think of your hollow arguments if you are Native American. Please indicate your tribe, otherwise you do not own this land! Sorry to wake you up!

      • Milton says:

        Its messed up you saying things like that, I came to this country since I was one. My family came here for a better life. I graduated from high school this year with a advance diploma and and one of the top four kids in my auto technology class for an apprenticeship for a general motors program, I speak perfect English, And I know how to write properly unlike you. People like you saying stuff like that try to put us down because you know we’re going to have a good career and don’t understand the struggles we have to go threw to survive in a country that seperates people by a ssn

        It is funny you would have such crude things to say when evidently you can’t speak English your self. Yall is not a word. The profanity you use just shows your ignorence! I am sure at one point in time your family too was immigrants, unless ofcourse you are Native American. (I think not!!) I have news for you if all the immagrants left this country America would fall apart. You really should do more research before you post such worthless nonsence!! Thank you.

      • stephany says:

        by the way the comment was for travis..

      • Jana says:

        To Travis:
        You should really become more educated about the crap your saying!
        Maybe you should go buy a plane ticket and leave the US too, because this is NOT your
        Land LOL!! Just because you were born here doesn’t make this YOUR land. For the matter of fact, no land is anyone’s ones land… This is native land, so if your opinion is that immigrants need to leave , you better start packing your bags and get out. Christopher Columbus came here with a boat load of immigrants who were not born in the US and settled in on Indian land! You might have been born here; your mother or grandmother might have been born here; but your family history isn’t from here. And in regards to religion, people any where in the world have the right to believe in whatsoever they choose too. Religion wasn’t created in the US either! Immigrants from where your family came in a boat brought it over…..so idiots like you, need to become more educated about “YOUR” land….. God didn’t created any one specific land for any one specific race. He created land for the human race. There’s no such thing as illegal Alien. No human is an alien here on earth. This is very unfortunate for you, because your head is so far up your ass that your brain has turned in to shit. Think and rethink all you say; bc there’s nothing good coming out of that brain of yours. Become educated and then really put time and effort in to forming your own opinion before you have settled on one where you loose by far…. I truly wish you the best and hope that sometime soon you will wake up and realize that the world you are living in isn’t a world that revolves around money and politics and government. It’s a world that revolves around humans no matter where they were born. The only important thing here on earth is US an making sure we learn how to united and be one….don’t be a sheep

      • fuck gringos says:

        fuck yo shit bitch..if you actually learned something in school you piece of shit ,u would have known that the indians where here first than yall white pieces of shit..and yall mothafuckas crying cause we take yalls job.well guess what bitch get cho ass up the couch and go find one.go cut grass,do roofing,or construction u lazy fuck,cause i bet you damn well yall white lazy fucks wouldnt do that..suck a dick

      • Jorge says:

        since when yall? is ENGLISH, you should probably go back to your continent, if you know what i mean, we do not speak that way here, they should be deporting all this garbage from USA, that is the reason why we are going to recession every now and then, because of this kind of people, where do you think all your welfare is coming from, “we pay taxes”, please if you will have pay taxes ever in your life, you would not be here saying all that hate speech to people that without education and without legal papers can still take your job.

We aren’t taking your jobs. Those jobs mexicans are working as: resturant, construstion, and cleaning houses. we dont spend it on tatoos, drugs, and things that aren’t worth buying. You say mexicans should leave and that we are worthless? but you have the guts to eat our food? and say its delieouse.

        • couragous12 says:

          actually, dear, Mexico was populated by Indians prior to the coming of the Spaniards who also called California theirs. and if you all go far enough back, ALL the Indians immigrated to this continent about 12,000 years ago from Asia. They used the Land Bridge that connected Asia with North America during several ice ages. Different groups migrated to different areas of North and South America and then evolved. Each group, depending upon their elevation, and weather environments evolved attributes, over time, that helped them in their daily lives. Peoples living in higher elevations adapted by growing shorter and they generally have barrel chests, bigger set of lungs to breath in the low oxygen atmosphere at their elevation. Others developed long limbs and thinner body types. Nowadays these differences are what keeps us all saying we’re not alike when we all came from the same origins.

          I was hoping for an intelligent conversation, I’m leaving this forum

          You ALL need to do some research on Critical Thinking before commenting
          taking care that the arguments you’re using actually have some sort of documented evidence. Everything spouted here is racist/reverse racist, hateful, ugly, unhelpful, and totally useless.

        You do know Mexicans were the ones who were in this land first, california was even fart of Mexico once and white people are the imigrants who came and thought they had the right to be the owners, sometimes i wander if if people like you see how stupid they look when they say things like that

      • angie says:

        It is truly sad because this country was founded by “foreigners” who were looking for a place to have free speech, religion and the opportunity to better themselves.
        Does that sound familiar. Today it is no different. The only difference is that the people who have the same desires that our ancestors had came to this country have different cultures and customs that are foreign to you. So you reject them. You are also looking to have a fall guy for your own failures and inability to make it in this society. In otherwords you need a scapegoat, so you look to the guy that is already hitting the dirt trying to survive and attain the very things that we as “Americans” have attained. Shame on you!!! The foundation of our Constitution and Bill of Rights is for all peoples. There is no such thing as an “Alien” on this planet except for those from the movies.
        Work hard and you too can attain the “American Dream”!!
        God bless American and everyone in it.

        Thank you

        your lack of respect and just plain selfishness is quite repulsive. must really suck to have so much hate over your own kind(humans). but i know what this is, its attention seeking only because you don’t receive attention at home, yet you are living the easy life. while us aliens who like humans have the right to live an equal life are made to be in our own home aliens and have to fear leaving the ones we love just because we have no papers. so there you go, you got your fame but don’t worry we aliens will now be able to hire people like you to fix our toilets.

          I was reading all the posts and cannot begin to imagine that this would not be a touchy subject.
          I am a born US citizen , I believe we all have rights, whether you are an immigrant or not.
          My problem is when an illegal immigrant does not pay for their paperwork because they claim not to have money… ( it cannot always be proven so they milk our system) or when a couple comes here from their country and reproduce.. Not only one time but 3,4,5,6… And then complain when they are deported and the children are left behind. I have personally met a few people that are applying for this dream act… They are going to attend school just to qualify… But they are requesting assistance.. Remember all of their income is not taxed so they are able to show less money.
          I believe that if my child must pay thousands to get an education then so should all of these..DREAMERS! My children also have a dream to recieve an education.
          As for a Mexican / Britt being above an American… Well.. What in the world are you doing here among all us dumb people who cannot keep jobs? You are obviously here because of all the possibilities us Americans offer.
          And maybe some of you ( meaning all that used the foul language)should go back to school maybe then you can learn how to better express yourselves and while your at it maybe pick up some manners! Good luck to all…measly my opinion

      • colombiana says:

        travis i couldn’t help but notice your comment, it made me laugh like a post i never seen before. (although i shall say your spelling and english terminology is something else). alright let’s point an incorrect fact you have established. the “aliens” you so happen to mention. i can tell you from personal experience, that we do in fact pay taxes like any normal citizen , and ultimately i do not understand why you are being so defensive, it is not like we are literately invading your land. IT IS NOT YOURS, you unlike some of us, happened to be born here therefore acquiring the benefit right away. but anyways instruct yourself before stating ignorant public post, i mean unless you are trying to troll. But let me tell you. you’re just bad at it lol. simply not intelligent enough to out take comebacks, and your responses are just out of contest.

      Para todos los dreamers mayores de 30 años, hay que hablar alos medios de comunicacion radio,television, facebook,youutube etc. y decirles que no es justo que dejen fuera de esta nueva poliza a los primeros dreamers que empezaron con este movimiento hace 12 años y hora no califican nada mas por que son mayores de 30 pero cumplen con todos los reqisitos. No es justo
      Corran la voz antes de que entre en efecto la nueva poliza todavia hay chance de que puedan hacer cambios ala poliza. Si no hablamos nos van ha ignorar

    I came here a week after I turned 17, I’ve been here for 6 years and I have a high school diploma, I entered with a B-1 B-2 visa, therefore I wasn’t illegal, would I still qualify?

  21. Antonio says:

    I come here at the age 14 I been here for about 12 years and I’m graduated from high school but not In college right now can instill cualify?????

  22. I came here at age six. Now I am 15, almost 16 and about to start the 10th grade. In one of the requirements it says “have graduated high school.” Does this mean out of highschool, or can a person still be in high schoolto be able to qualify? Please someone clear that out for me. It is the only question I have since I meet the rest of the requirements. Thanks.

  23. Perla Cordoba says:

    I have that same question. I meet everything except the graduated high school part. Do I HAVE TO BE graduated in order to be able to apply? Is there a “meet four of the five requirements” thing?

  24. Nat says:

    I came here when I was 16 and I just have 2 years and a half, I’ll finish my high school next summer I’ll have 3 1/2 years living here so, do anybody know if I still can apply to this act??? I came here with VISA

  25. Rachel says:

    I came to the US legally when I was 11, lived 2 years and attended middle school, then moved back to my country.

    Again, I moved back to the US legally with a student visa to attend college at the age of 18 and lived there for 5 consecutive years.

    Currently I am under 30 and enrolled in a US graduate school. It seems like I meet all the requirements BUT I was legal the whole time. Does anybody know if the DREAM act also applies to immigrants who have papers?

  26. Juan Hernandez says:

    I am currently 30 yeas old I turned 30, 4 months ago I meet all the requiments and I also have a Bachelor degree do I Qualify

My parents brought me back (Argentina) and finish high school down here, so my question is even though am back in my country and since i was a minor still when my parents brought me back can i still qualify for dream act?

    • Daniel says:

      • carla says:

        okay, so i just have one last question for you; Even thought i lived in the US for more than five consecutive years, i still dont apply ? or the fact that am not in the country any more makes it impossible ?

I didn’t get deported I left and have been one year out of the US. My question is can I apply for this and is there anyway this law can help me get back? All my family lives over there and I really do want to go back. So is there any way this can help me?

    • Daniel says:

  47. Julie says:

    Hello,
    My sister and I arrived to the US in 2001 with 9 and 11 years of age, later in 2005 we left and went back again in November of that year. Finally after both of us graduated from high school we left in May 2010. We were never illegal.
    We are currently in our home country. My question is do you have to be in the United States to qualify for this? and I think with those dates its a little under 5 years does that hurt our case?

    Thank you.
    Julie.

  48. Itzel785 says:

    Hello everyone:

    I’m in the same position as everyone and am hoping the Dream Act will pass soon. However, with the Deferred Act (Deferred Action Process for Young People Who Are Low Enforcement Priorities) passing, I at least qualify for that. I keep myself informed by logging on daily to the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS)website and Facebook page. I also log here to the Dream Act.com website. I’d be glad to help anyone. I’m not a lawyer/attorney. I’m just like everyone else hoping for the Dream Act to pass. If I can help, I will answer your question and post the link to where I found this information. Thanks for reading and God Bless you all.

  49. tino says:

    I am 22 years old ,i graduated with a diploma from high school,and i been living in the united states since i was six months old, and i have no felonys,does anybody know if i qualify,becouse i read that you have to be 30 years old,and enrolled in college.(Please let me know if i qualify).

    • Itzel785 says:

      Hi Tino:

      You mentioned youve been in the country since you were 6 months old and are now 22, you have a clean record. You dont have to be enrolled in college but it would be beneficial for your future. Here are the requirements to apply for the Deferred Act and I’ll also include the link where you can find them and a PDF file. It seems in my opinion you do qualify and will then be able to request and employment authorization and obtain a drivers license and SS card, for tax purposes, etc. Remember this act is good for 2 years, you have to keep renewing, unless its repealed or if our MAIN dream, the Dream Act passes..good luck…

      Itzel

  56. Vanessa says:

    Hi,
    I want to find out some information for my boyfriend. My boyfriend came to the United States at the age of 2 and is now 26. My main concern is my boyfriend was recently arrested for a warrant he had due to not paying his traffic tickets on time. While he was in jail(not county) doing time. The public defender got him off with doing Cal Trans, but the thing is he has a misdemeanor on his record. I was wondering if he can still be eligible for the DREAM Act? He graduated from High School and speaks perfect english, but is currently not enrolled in college. He only needs about 12-14 units left before he can receive his AA degree. He has a daughter that was born in the U.S. Other then the misdemeanor due to his traffic tickets. I would really like to know if he can still be able to qualify? Or do you think we’re better off talking to an immigration attorney?

  57. Chris says:

    Answering this question as fairly and with as much compassion as possible, a poster is asked what the ‘h’ does this have to do with we Americans?? Well, it all boils down to a matter of economics and scarcity. You people are competing with our young and brightest for the same opportunities and right now is a bad time for America to swell our pool of population competing against our own for what they should, rightfully, be allowed to secure prior to any person whom is here in violation of our laws.

    Technically, you are criminals much in the same way that a person who drives his ‘friends’ to the convenience store to get something and, unbeknownst to that driver, his ‘friends’ rob the store.

    Though you, the driver, had no idea that a crime was being commited, according to the law you are just as guilty and will, too, be tried with the ones robbing the store. Here, in California, anyways.

    The sad part is that you do not feel sympathy for we Americans and only want what you want – despite who gets hurt along the way. Yet, you want our sympathy.

    This is a fucking joke….. Think about this if this passes and helps u illegals become legal before November that mean u can vote right? So why wouldn’t Obama try to pass this on an election year cus all of u would vote for him it’s all BS …. His doesn’t care about illegals he just wants votes. To some of those comments about being “white trash” and not wanting to work that’s BS I bust my ass everyday and livIng pay check to pay check and u fucks are here tax free buying all types of shit and living better than most of us who work at the same job :.. And most places will hire u cus ur cheap labor, no taxes, no workmans comp, no unemployment insurance, they don’t have to pay u over time, work u as much as they want cus they know that you won’t bitch cus you are not legal and have to work …. A lot of you send most your $ back home so you can bring more illegals up here ….Wtf!

    • Ximena says:

      Ummmm first of all sweetie we wont be able to vote alright? its just to go to school and okay were “illegals” like you call us but yet we still know how to spell and stuff its just some goof thing that Obama is doing so we can go to school without paying more i don’t see why you get mad. We are not going to bother you guys.. so yeah have a blessed night :)

    • Chuck101 says:

      You think you have it hard
      We work hard too
      We pay taxes too
      We get payed less and have to take care of our family’s
      All you white people do is get your fancy cars and house from your mommy and daddy
      If you don’t want to work hard anymore
      Go with mommy and daddy
      And eat there food and live in their house
      You selfish lazy prick

    • Chuck101 says:

      PS
      Everyone who came here in the beginning of America were immigrants
      WE BUILT THIS COUNTRY
      You white people take all the credit
      You were lazy now and in the past
      All whites had to rely on black people to do their jobs
      But now the blame Mexicans for what they can’t do
      We suffered more
      White people have it easy
      Go back with your mommy

  80. Tatiana alvarenga says:

    I came to this country when I was 7 years old I’m 16 now I go to high school don’t have anycriminal record do I still qualified????

  81. EmilyElizabeth says:

    for all of you out there who think this is stupid and immigrants should just move back to their own country, you need to shut up and listen. It’s people like you that give America a bad name. we are one of the most free countrys in the world and you can sit there and hide behind you computer and tell the whole world to stay out of our country for your entire life but you will only accomplish nothing. i bet over half of you that made those idiotic comments are have no idea what youre talking about. everyones entitled to their opinion but you cant go around stating it as if it should be law. Learn something about this country before you go and embaress not only your self but your country’s reptutaion. Our armys arent fighting for illegal immagrants but theyre also not fighting so you could sit on your ass and make jokes, but when a starving child comes up to you no matter what race and illegal or not no one should be able to ignore it. The fact is that yeah, immigrants make cheeper labor so yes they do tend to get jobs in replace of the white american, but if you were truley worth it then you wouldnt be the one fired. in may noy be the wild but understand its always survival of the fittest, just because were spoiled and live in america doesnt mean there isnt other amazing 1st world countries to explore. if you were worth it you wouldnt have been fired or the one complaining, so get up and make something of youre self dont just sit around and wait for it to come to you because illegal or not theyre the ones atleast trying as hard as they can to put food on the table, stop complaining and return the favor.

    • Yessica says:

      Yes you can. You had to be here for the past 5 years, and have proof for it. It can be anything that shows your name and date. Just to prove you were here for those 5 years. For example bank account statements, school papers, letters, etc…Also you will need proof that you were here on june 15. You will need a high school diploma or ged and no misdemeaners.

    Hello,
    My name is Jose and I currently am 17 years old. I entered the U.S. back in 2004 when i was 9 years old (8 years ago, 9 years this October) I have been in attending school, gotten good grades, Honor certificates, Honor Classes, Presidential award (I’m not sure if its worth as much as it sounds), participated in my high school’s track team, and never been in trouble with the law or school. I would like to know if I meet the requirements to apply for the Dream Act even though I’m still not finished with High School. To who ever is reading this and answers my question, I would truly like to thank you for your time.
    -Best
    Jose A.

    August 7, 2012

    Dear Adreamact:

    I would like to make this simple so let me get to the point. I desire with all my heart to join the US Navy and so I would like to know if Obama’s Dream Act can help me get there. Please allow me to explain my situation. My name is Francisco and I was born In Mexico. I am an undocumented worker or as most people like to say I am an “illegal”. I came to the US when I was 15 with my family and since then I have worked hard to earn the right to be called an American. I have come to realize that the best way to prove my loyalty and love for this country would be to put my life on the line and fight for it, but most of all I want to join the Navy because I want to experience all that life as to offer.

    I am a 30 year old man, single, no kids, and no police record (besides a couple or speeding tickets). I have spent the last year bettering myself; reading, writing, singing, pushing my body as hard as I can so I can be ready and worthy of joining Navy.

    If you can help me in any way please let me know. I welcome any and all help you can give me.

    Respectfully yours;

    Francisco J Robles

    • Sulma says:

      Francisco

      To my knowledge as long as you were 31 before the day the law past on June 15 you can apply and you say you are only 30 i would definitely apply if you were not to qualify they will not do anything to you as long as you don’t cause a threat to the Country. Also this is a SSN they are given you that you can apply to school with so my guess would be that you could join the navy. If i were you i would differently try.

    The official who briefed reporters said 1,200 illegal immigrants who were already pending in the deportation system have been granted deferred action.

    The legal status — and a work permit — will last for two years at first, but can be renewed again, meaning those who qualify can remain in the U.S. without fear of deportation, and with the right to work.

Am i eligible to apply?

  123. inaki says:

    not all immigrants are mexicans there’s alot of asians,sudamericans,australians. We might be the most populated race but i think this dream act would really benefit us students. To prove once and for all that we are not here just to have babies or commit crimes, we are here to learn, to adapt to a new culture that is different from the one we were borned from. this will prove that us immigrants help out this country more then they think so!

  124. John Preston says:

    Why are we acting so ignorant , come on people we’re living in “Common Era” 21st century dude. I don’t see why we act so “EVIL”!

I dont see any other race willing to work hard and sweat there ass off for minimum wage dude RIGHT!” I know i wouldn’t ! We need to respect eachother MORE!
    In a Hundred years from now all this shit wont matter! So why can’t we all just live our lives the way we want to ,That’s why GOD died on that cross for us! So that he could give us freedom of choice , and to forgive us for not being perfect !

  126. Alexander says:

    Why do illegal immigrants get this special treatment when legals like me get put down? how is this fair, and from my understanding i DON’T qualify for the dream act. But i could be wrong. Please advise, here is my situation..
    I moved to the US 5 years ago from England as a dependent on my parents E2 (investment visa), i’m 18 years old. Graduated high school with a 3.9 GPA and a 29 on my ACT. I want to start collage soon. Ive never even been pulled over, I renew my I94 always on time. My parents company employes over 30 american citizens.
    If this act is really what its called (dream) then why are so many LEGALS getting their dreams destroyed by this administration? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you for your time.

    • Andrew says:

      I agree… I came here when I was 14… on tourist visa, then my mother decided to switched to F1, so I was F2. then switched to E2 (business). while all these were happening I graduated high school, changed my visa status to F1. Now I go to University of Texas as Austin with F1. I want to stay, so I played everything by the book. and now when my visa I have to leave. What kind of s&*# is this? Honestly, I thought American dream was about you get your opportunity if you play everything by the book.

    I have only one concern. My husband came to the US when he was 4. He is currently 22. We met in high school freshman year. He graduated from high school, does not have any crimanal records, has a social, payed taxes. Last year, I was planning my wedding, we were supposed to get married this year in March, then the ICE police came in July of last year knocking at my door, he opened and ICE took him away from me. He got deported the week later.So I couldn’t get married to my husband because we were told it was easier to get married in his country so my husband sign the voluntary deportation form. We both had to get married in a country that neither of us knew. He considers the US his country. Now my question is can the DREAM ACT apply for my husband even though he is already deported for a year?

    the proper word to use in between to and you is WHERE not WEAR.
    WEAR: IS TO WEAR CLOTHING OR AN OBJECT ON YOU
    WHERE: IS THE DESTINATION YOU ARE GOING TO OR WHERE YOU ARE AT!

I only got cought one time for stealing a bracelet when I was 10(which I regret), but they didnt take fingerprints or call police since I was a minor, they just sent a bill to my house and took my information like what school I went to my adress, hair color,weight, ect.., The bill was never payed. is that a record?

  184. Oscar Bustamante says:

    I would just like to say thank you Mrs. Garcia for helping me on getting my work permit. I’ve been trying to have this opportunity to be out there job hunting with out any fear of been rejected by any American Architecture Company. I have 1 more years to complete my Architecture Degreed and thanks to you Mrs. Garcia i will have my dream come real. I’ve given all my collage friends and anyone i know your Business cards for them to get the best professional service from someone like your self as a Hispanic professional women and spanish speaker, someone the really understand what we feel and know how hard we work to have the American Dream.

    I can now relax knowing my family and i can stay in this country we love & worked so hard for. Thanks again Mrs. Garcia for changing my life.

    hello i need a little help with this. about two years ago i was caught trespassing with some people i shouldnt have been with but i was taken by the police. my case never went trough the judge they just gave me a warning in court to stop hanging out with those people and to report anything i was doing to an officer for three months. do i still qualify for the dream act because aside from that i have been a A’s and B’s student and have been here in the U.S for 7 years i am 16 right now and im a junior in high school do you think that i still qualify?

  198. Joe Mama says:

    My parents came here as immigrants in the early 50′s from Europe. Their early life in this country was very similar to the hard working people that come here illegaly. Biggest difference was that they did not have to constantly worry about being arrested and deported. My dad work for crap wages in a sweat shop. His biggest dream was the same as anyone who comes to this country. Hoping their kids lives would turn out to be better than theirs and I ask what the is wrong with that!!!!!!

  199. Pedro Ramirez says:

  201. Gilberto Ramires says:

    The referral to Rita Garcia was met with significant skepticism because – 1. After i wach the news of all the proaganda. 2. I was warned that fees were a sign of a scam. 3. Why pay someone when i can get it for FREE. Because of the referral and after doing the research, I chose Rita Garcia, though not without a degree of trepidation and, frankly, much hope. Throughout the process, which took over a 45 days, my calls were promptly returned, questions answered, and I was kept informed as to the progress of my application. The outcome was more than satisfactory. I am grateful for the integrity and work of Rita Garcia. After nearly 20 years the pressure is finally off.

    Sincerely,

    Gilberto Ramires

    For all of you applying, congrats to you. I am a teacher of ESL. I know that you will help keep our country young and I am glad you are here. Please, if you can, don’t respond to people who are using this forum inappropriately. They are afraid because they are ignorant. Pity them and let success be your best revenge against them. Make the US better, in spite of them. As for illegal over legal. Illegal wouldn’t be illegal if the laws were changed. MLK fought laws that are now no longer in place, and history has shown us they were wrong. They worked against us as a country. Immigration laws will follow. By 2050 90 percent of our growth in population will be immigrants. That is what made us great, and will continue. Populations change, and that’s ok. If we work together and use reason, instead of emotion with not facts or education behind it, we will be more than fine. Change is painful. Thank you for taking up the fight to better yourselves and to be part of this country. Work hard, get the most education you possibly can, and pass it on.

    Great Help to Deal with a Stressful Situation for my Work permit.

    The quality of customer service that I have received during the process has been exceptional! Rita Garcia wes very patient and took the time I needed to explain the process to me and make sure that all required paperwork was submitted.

    She monitored the process and provided regular updates that helped the process continue and reduce my stress level (which was through the roof!) at the same time.
    Rita Garcia is high quality and reputable, unlike others that I inquired about prior to retaining the services of Mrs. Garcia. There were no false advertising…No slick “Wheeling and Dealing” – She reviewed my situation and gave me an honest assessment of the situation. No Pressure, no hassle, No fake promises – just good customer service.

    I highly recommend Mrs, Garcia to anyone that needs help to deal with horrible INS laws.

  229. Beto says:

    Ignorance is never bliss, Latinos. OPEN YOUR EYES?

    What makes you think Dream Act (Deferred Action) is not helping us!!!!
    Over 8 million Latinos will qualify for a work permit. If we hit that, our latinos will get stronger.
    Stop being so ignorant.
    I’m not saying this to be racist.
    I know plenty of latinos who are applying for the Deferred Action.

    The choice is yours.

    P.S. Thanks to Mrs. Rita Garcia for helping all my people i’
    ve send to get there work permit…

  233. Alison says:

    I came to America when I was 15, but didn’t get a job until about 6 months later. The only thing I have as proof during that time is a lease from where I lived at the time. Do you think that will work as proof? I have all my w-2′s from like 6 months later, but I was 16 years old then. Thanks for the help.

  234. Cesar says:

    Isn’t everybody in the U.S an Immigrant? Didn’t everyone come to this country because they didn’t like the country they were in? The only true Americans are the Indios (Native American) for those non-spanish speaking immigrants. Only difference is us Mexicans didn’t have to cross the ocean…just a little river.

    New driver’s license law for immigrants stirs debate in California

    A law signed by Gov. Jerry Brown late Sunday night qualifying hundreds of thousands of undocumented Californians for drivers’ licenses found a lukewarm response from the young immigrants it is supposed to benefit.

    “We’re tired of being used — as Dreamers, as immigrant youth — as a political football,” said Carlos Amador, who said the bill was symbolic and does little that is not long-standing policy at the state Department of Motor Vehicles.

    The bill, AB 2189, was one of the last of hundreds Brown signed before his midnight Sunday deadline and made national news within hours. It links California to a new Obama administration “deferred action” deportation relief policy granting work permits to illegal immigrants no older than 30 who came to the United States as children.

    The California bill makes clear that anyone approved for an Obama administration work permit can now get a state driver’s license.

    “President Obama has recognized the unique status of these students, and making them eligible to apply for driver’s licenses is an obvious next step,” said Brown spokesman Gil Duran, in a written release Monday.

    Some 400,000 Californians could be eligible for the federal work permits, but experts and activists said they probably didn’t need the new legislation to get a license.

    P.S Thank you Mrs. Rita Garcia for your help. Now i can drive anywhere i want with out fear to loose my car. Work permit and now my driver license wow i am in living my dream.

    Hi I have a question I currently got a ticket for driving without no licence and I had to go to court one of the lawyers stepped me outside before I had to talk to the judge he told me about this DNA thing I could do and pay 75 dollars instead of paying the ticket and stuff so they took my DNA so I could be in the system and my fingerprints and picture . They told me my record would be clean after that. Of the police have my fingerprints and DNA will it affect me when I have to go take my fingerprints to have permission to be a citizen?

  243. Nice USA Citizen says:

    Hi – im not going to say or insult you Aliens. However,
    Why Are You TRASHING W H I T E S? OUR FOUNDING FATHERS were WHITE. This land was nothing before they got here.
    they Prayed, YES they prayed and GOD HELPED THEM.
    LONG LONG Ago Indians were here. They weren’t doing nothing with this land (yes, I AM WHITE, as You call us, I am also Spanish & American Indian). a few of my generations born here. However, IT took WHITES to come here, sacrafice a lot, AND Seeked GOD & with OUR CREATORS Help. WE became the USA. Praise GOD. :-) (slowly but surely). A Lot of you know people from other countries as well who, have tried learning English before they arive here. Then proceed to do things the right way. As Americans WE have to Follow LAWS of the Land. Some of you come here don’t even know ENGLISH; “and You are our Neighbors”. ????? OUR FOUNDING FATHERS were at one time where you are today but THEY knew ENGLISH – THEY seeked GOD. You can seek him TOO. “Nothing is impossible with HIM”…..You can, if you want, go to your Country and do the same, Make Your country like USA-CANADA -EUROPE. USE Your Smarts, ASK GODS HELP. BUT PLEASE DO NOT T R A S H AMERICANS. IF YOU THINK WE ARE WHITE TRASH then WHY WHY ARE YOU HERE? PLEASE SEEK GOD (ASK JESUS INTO YOUR HEART) God bless you all.

    • jack jack says:

      aliens? how about saying you people…you should seek God and stop calling people aliens..a christian would not call people aliens even tho the government does…and yes the founding fathers built this country but with the help of both legal and illegal immigrants and lets not forget about salves…the founding fathers didn’t do all the labor.

    • Corina says:

      I have to comment to one thing that stuck me out of all the things you wrote in your reply Nice USA Citizen.
      “LONG LONG Ago Indians were here. They weren’t doing nothing with this land (yes, I AM WHITE, as You call us, I am also Spanish & American Indian).”
      WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY Native Americans (or Indians as you called them) were not doing nothing with their land?!!
      This was THEIR LAND! from the very beginning, they were existing, living their lives …raising their families. Just because they disnt believe in out God, or ate our foods, or spoke our languages or had a thirst FOR GREED AND MONEY AND RICHES, DID NOT mean that they were doing NOTHING with this land! and that did not excuse or give us (WHITES) the right to slaughter them, and take away their land and shove those who survived into reservations! This is a big and sad part of history and sadly does not get taught in our schools. What the whites did to the Native Americans was genocide! comparable to what the Nazis did to the Jews.
      Please take the time to educate yourself about your countrys history.

  245. Jennifer Karman says:

    I am asking about a friend. I have been friends with a family for about 15 years. They came to the United States from Sweden when their daughter was 5 years old (in about 1998) she lived here through graduation and a few months beyond. Her parents divorced during her senior year and her father (he was the original green card holder, the family was here on his card) decided to offer no help in securing her paperwork to allow her to stay with her mom. He was angry at the way the divorce proceedings went and since her little brother and mom was staying in the U.S. without his control, he decided to express his anger on the only person he could, his daughter. She was not willing to ruin her chances of ever coming back, so she did the legal thing and went back to Sweden, where she now has to stay for a couple years before being able to try to come back.

    Sorry for the long intro, but my question, is there a way for her to come back under the DREAM act? She has met every criteria except that she left the country a couple months before the DREAM took effect. When she had to go back to Sweden it was like returning to a foreign country. She barely even speaks the language and now feels stuck so far away from her mom and her little brother (a U.S. citizen), I hope there is a way for her to come back home. I feel like she is being punished for following the rules and now even though she was here for 15 years straight, she had a break because she went back to Sweden, and missed the criteria of 5 years before passage, by just a few months.

    I AM MEXICAN AND I CAME TO THIS COUNTRY TO FIND PINK TACO’S. O,IM SO HAPPY TO BE HERE. BY THE WAY,FUZZY NUTS ANYBODY? SAY AAAAAAAAAHHHHHH.

  249. Mex says:

    If you don’t believe in system and order then maybe you should go back home. We all have to share this planet that why it is governed if it wasn’t we would all be killing each other.Good example look at the middle east there is no law that governs everyone so all they do is kill each other because one feels there better then the other. Law and order is a good thing, here in America it not to hold back anyone from accomplishing there dreams it to keep things safe for everyone. If you want to live in America you need to agree with our laws. If you got citizenship congratulations to you and I wish you well. If you are here illegally then you need to make it right! Its not fare to the immigrant that went through all the proper steps to become legal you are taking their dream away. Everyone is subjected to there own option that is what makes this country great, but be warned if you hurt anybody you will have the system rain down on you so hard you wont know what hit you. That goes for everyone. Not everyone is a writer so to put down someone because they can’t write is wrong too.I for one suck at writing and I hate it, but I am very good at other things. Stop being a bigot and do what right!!

  253. Oscar says:

    Thank you Rita Garcia!!

    I was referred to Rita Garcia for assistance with obtaining my work permit and be able to stay here legally. I had tried on my own to get a FREE ride like we always do. And i was denied.

    Rita Garcia was with me every step of the way….processing and reprocessing my file. She were always extremely professional, helpful and friendly throughout the entire process. These are definitely trying times in California and it is a very emotional and scary situation to be in and Rita Garcia made it easier for me. Through much hard work and effort on her part, She obtained an amazing opportunity for me! Thanks to Rita Garcia.

    “MESSAGE TO EVERYONE WHO IS TRYING TO GET A FREE RIDE FOR YOUR FUTURE”

    PLEASE RESPECT AN ATTORNEY PROFESSION AND THE INS SRVICE FEES. DON’T EXPECT TO GET THIS SERVICE FOR FREE, WE ALREADY BROKE THE LAW TO COME HERE ILLEGALY AND THIS BEAUTIFUL COUNTRY (USA) IS GIVING US THE OPPORTUNITY THAT OUR OWN COUNTRY DOESN’T GIVE US. STOP BEEN SO FUCKING IGNORANCE FOR ONCE IN YOUR LIFE AND PAY FOR THIS PROFESSION SERVICE. “NOT EVEN FREEDOM IS FREE”. IT COST MONEY. YOU JUST DON’T KNOW BECOUSE YOU ALWAYS BEEGING FOR A FREE RIDE. HAVE SOME PRIDE FOR YOUR SELF AND STOP BEEGING FOR FREE LEGAL SERVICE.

    So, I’m still in high school (12th grade). I have a good moral. I’m 17 years old at the moment. I was brought here into the U.S illegally on OCTOBER 12, 2007. Do I qualify for this act? I’ve been living on the U.S for five consecutive years as of OCTOBER 12, 2012. Do I qualify? Any help will be much appreciated. Thanks.

    diploma as evidince ?

  256. Corina says:

    Rita Garcia, how can we have a consult with you or contact you? Im in need of advice and would like you assistance. My case is very very lengthly and complicated, but i have hope that the Dream Act could help me, as i consider myself a true DREAMER. I came to the US with my mom and sister from Lima, Peru April 5, 1990- I was just 8 yrs old. I went through high school, graduated college in 2001, then got my batchelors in 2006. I have a US Citizen daughter and husband. Speak perfect english, have never been in trouble with the law. I meet all the criteria except the fact that i tured 32 on April 14, 2012….just 2 months before the cut off date of June 15th! Is there any way that my case could be considered?
    I hope to hear from you! Thanks for all you are doing to help us.
    Sincerely,
    Corina

    I have a friend who has been here since 1993 he is now 22 graduated has her high school diploma he has a felony for a “hit and run” will this automitically disqualify for the dream act? is there anything that can be done?

    For eve2008

    Try looking for a lawyer ot imigration lawyer who can do a set asidee its suppost to clear the record or something like dat weir doin it for mi brpther

  259. David Gonzales says:

    In my opiniion I would only give legalazation permission to students who will or have got a degree in a major…. but will not qualify for many of government benifets. The United States should not give full benefits like food stamps or unemploymnet to dreamers, only things such as educational help, etc. If you have not finished high school and are a parent you should get your past school records together and get yourself enrolled into atleast a GED program, but you as well should not qualify for government help only legalazation, your born US citizen children will only get the benefits. THe United States is not a place to just give out legal status for those that already live here as illegals, this country is for people who come here and want to play a follow things by the book. (by the law)

  260. Rita Garcia says:

    HiPlease contact me at 714-271-9575

  261. Rita Garcia says:

    My number is 714-271-9575 please call me to discuss.

  262. David Gonzales says:

    Rita Garica, this would be to discuss about the dream act or to discuss about your status in this country?

  263. Jamesbond says:

    This is really sad. First off some of you don’t understand how difficult it really is to get a visa in some of these countries. It’s really hard for some folks in some countries who are poor and earn low wages to qualify for one. Look, everyone sees America as the land of opportunity, everyone wants the chance to come here for a better life and you have no idea what it’s like living in poverty with no help from the government. All some of you do here is complain that illegals should go back to their country but how would you feel if you we’re walking in their shoes? Desperate people with no help but want a better life would brake some rules to get here, it’s not right, but you have to understand where they’re coming from. It’s tough being here undocumented but some of them just want a chance and a chance to be with their families. If you we’re born a Latino you would understand, but no, most of you are born Americans probably from decent wage earning families with this problem not hanging over your heads. America cannot be this selfish. Smh

    Yes they’ve broken laws but what would you do if you we’re in poverty in that situation, how would you act out of desperation for a better life?

    • Mex says:

      Its people like you that is causing our country to fail.Put your self in there shoes ……Give Me A Break put your self in an Americans shoes work hard paid taxes their hole life and cant collect the retirement or get health care from medicaid because there is no money left. People like you need to give up there wage to pay for illegals. ER cost are outrageous 1 day cost 25k this is all caused by the illegals.

  264. Rudy Tapia says:

    David Gonzales you are simple-minded and stupid.

    Mrs. Garcia is not going to argue with plain stupidity.
    You just as stubborn as a god-damn mule.

    Are you proud of your lack of intelligence???

  265. todd says:

    Im tired of all the sicknesses that the south American people are bringing here getting people sick when the US didn’t have to worry about it tired of the law if you are born on Americas soils you are a citizen no other country does it we the people in the US can’t live in south America with out knowing someone and making a pretty good amount of money why don’t all you south Americans and Mexicans you say you love your country overthrow your government there’s more of you then government take your countries back and pay the people a good wages

  266. Jamesbond says:

    It’s funny how some of you talk about breaking laws and what not but a lot of you break laws every single day. What about piracy and downloading copyrighted music, videos and even software to save on hundreds of dollars… If you don’t do it, I’m pretty sure someone close to you does, so before you go on about breaking laws and all, look at yourself first and make sure you’re not breaking any before make statements.

  267. bryan says:

    I was wondering I fame to the US when I was 5 and left the US in 2007 at age 11 but had 6 years of being here I Came back in 2010 and i now have 3 years with no crime records and attending school i don’t know if I qualify for this law

  268. liz says:

    Hey travis you are just stupid ignorant who has no education at all,I bet you,,you live in a white trash trailer park and I am sure your mother race you with welfare with food stamps ha,you are just a red neck ignorant who probably didn’t make it to school because I am a fucking illegal like you call us and my writing is better then your’s american boy yeahhhhh what a shame dude I am here laughing my ass so hard making fun of you because you are just a joke you should be lock up in a mental institution like my stupid red neck ex husband who ended in the crazy house and ended in a wheel chair paralyzed and with a amputated leg,yeah is call karma what goes around comes around you know???soon or later pathetic people like you pay there dues,trust me I seated and waited and it happened maybe is time for you to think is not the way you want grow up,and get a job like we all illegal aliens like you call us do,I have 3 jobs I pay taxes I live in a very nice house I rented and guess what,I drive a BMW ha ha no licenses but I afford it and I never asked any american for money or food like americans do asking for change you guys need a job to keep busy and not get your nose in our business,

  269. Tiffany says:

    Most of you people leaving comments on here are pretty stupid, I’m not going to lie or sugar coat it. Racist, backward thinking fools running your mouths with no real moral sense of what the hell your saying. Not all Mexicans are bad and not all White people are bad, unfortunately most people in general ARE bad like you all have so expertly displayed on here. My husband has lived here since he was a year old. His parents brought him here illegally from Mexico and then took (in my opinion) a lot of short cuts and and mediocre attempts to make him a citizen, mostly not even following the rules set before them in regards to the case they opened for him to become a citizen so that when he was 18 he received a letter from the U.S. telling him he needed to leave and go back “HOME”. He went through the ENTIRE school system here from K-12 and worked since he was 15 years old at Mc’Donalds with a work permit trying to support himself. He is hard working and honest but because of someone else’s actions he now is a “criminal” in his own country which is America, THIS is HIS country. And every day him not being a citizen affects me (a “HORRIBLE WHITE” citizen) and our 16 month old daughter, and not even marrying him worked to make him a citizen. We are always in fear that something may happen to “daddy”. So there are a lot of people affected by this and it is so wrong to deny someone there REAL HOME (the country they know and grew up in) just because someone brought them here illegally. SO EVERYONE NEEDS TO OPEN THEIR MINDS OR CLOSE THEIR MOUTHS.

  270. Maria says:

    My niece was brought to USA before her 16 th bday. She enrolled to high school right away. She finishe and graduated. However before she entry USA she was caught by imigration services 2 times. She told imigration she was 18 because that’s what she was told when in reality she was 15. She got deportation for 10 years. Is there any hope she qualifies?

  271. The Truth Please says:

    For those Hispanic immigrants who have chosen to become productive members of the US, thank you. A concern of many Americans is the billions of dollars spent annually on the immigrants we see cruising our neighborhoods looking for things to steal, causing drunken accidents with us without insurance, populating our prisons, collecting welfare without contributing, etc… I caught a hispanic man teaching his son to urinate in public while surrounded by stores with bathrooms. A lot of the problem is a culturally reinforced expectation of quality of life. Many illegal immigrants carry their expectation of relative squalor and it frustrates those who prefer to have nicer surroundings and a higher quality of interaction and life in general. I, as an American, will promote a higher understanding of immigrant mentality to Americans and you (immigrants) promote a higher understanding of social evolution and a more productive lifestyle to immigrants. Deal?

  272. The Truth Please says:

    One more thing. Those who would assert an entitled sentiment in their argument for remaining in this country should review their own county’s policy regarding foreigners taking jobs. In Mexico, Americans who take jobs can be arrested and imprisoned. It is important, immigrants, to set a good example for your culture and country and obey the laws of the country you seek to inhabit – especially when that country is affording you an opportunity unavailable in your own country.

  273. Remember When says:

    I remember when I could leave my car windows down without worrying about theft. I remember when a summer job with a contractor didn’t require being bilingual. I remember when if I left my wallet at a store I could come back for it. I remember when traffic ran smoothly. I remember when car insurance wasn’t inflated due to uninsured motorist accidents. Yes, we were doing just fine before the mass immigration from mexico and now I can’t seem to go a day without being confronted by a few examples of how life is now worse after it. Immigrants and would be immigrants for God’s sake please do not detract from the American quality of life – please. Remember that you are leaving Mexico for a reason, don’t turn America into another Mexico. America can be a nice place to live again – please help.

    • Real American says:

      All the people who apply need to be rounded up and shipped off. If they show up again they need to be incarcerated.

  276. Stephan says:

    Hello Rita, I am 17 years old , and about ready to graduate highschool in may & I honestly have no idea how I am going to make it afer graduation. I was bought to the U.s at the age of 4 years old, by my cousin, and have gone to school here, all my life. Made honor roll throughout all of highschool right now with a gpa of 3.4. This is really stressing me out, I meet all the requirements for it as well. The problem is the money , My mother passed away, and my father, i have no idea what he even looks like. I have never seen him a day in my life. I pray every night that something works out for me. Looks like my only option is to go into the military. I had big plans when I was younger, always wanting to go to a BIG college to workout of videogame design etc. but as years went by I started to mature and realise that, theres almost nothing I can do at all. So here I am 6 months away from graduation. No papers. No license , No nothing. I’m basically just stuck. There is no income coming in so that I may apply for this dream act. & most of you probably think I’m hispanic, but actually I am black and was born in the country of haiti. I basically will be on my own , after 6 months , left without a clue. or anything. I ask anyone who can help me out, please . Even the slighest words of encouragment can help. Thanks alot for taking your time to sit and read this lenghty comment. it wasnot my intentions to put a sob story on this, but to tell my story, and how immigration laws make minors suffer. Even if it was not their desicions to come to this country. Any Advice, anything feel free to text or call me, my phone number is 732-800-6163 Thank you.

    I am 21 years old and currently, I am on Withholding of Removal. My parents brought me to the US when I was 11, I have already graduated high school and right now, I am a junior at a private liberal arts college. Do I still qualify for the Dream Act even though I am on withholding of removal?

  279. Miranda says:

    Just an FYI to all the people who seem to think that America consists of nothing but white people on welfare, this is not a true statement at all. There are many races in this country that rely on welfare. Including Hispanics. I don’t have a problem with the Dream Act.I’m all about someone following their dreams. But don’t sit here and categorize all white people as “lazy white trash on welfare. We are NOT all the same!” I’m a white woman who works hard for EVERYTHING I have. I do it on my OWN, with no help from the government! I’ve been that person who worked TWO jobs just to make ends meet, and I didn’t complain about it because I knew that I needed to. You want to learn something? How about learning RESPECT.

    Hi,

    Does this law apply to someone who has left that country and want to come back? Please help.

  285. James says:

    I’m white and was born here so I’m basically screwed…but if I was an ILLEGAL ALIEN I’d be set…WTF IS WRONG WITH OUR COUNTRY!!! Lets reward ppl that should be her to begin with by providing them with greater education and citizenship. Way to send a strong message that “our” government isn’t gonna stand for law breakers!!!!

    • Real American says:

      I agree most of these people are scum. Come over to the tri state and see how much they value education. Running around in gangs nothing but filth these people are. My family has been here for 50 years, have family members who in the military. If they want to show devotion they should join the military and they will be given a citizenship for doing so.

  286. James says:

    That shouldn’t be here

  287. Tom says:

    There should be no immigration reform, without English being made the official language of the United States, and also every state goverment. I would have no problem with any reform law if Federal, State, and local governemnts only operated in English.

    Hello my name is brenda I was brought here
    When I was 3 years old I am. 19 I’m trying to go back and alist get my ged but everywhere I go they
    Ask me if I have. Pappers is there anyway I can get my ged I need help can someone help me

  289. Real American says:

    Please, they should have came here legally to begin with. This is a slap in the face of the real Americans who applied and waited their turn to come here. If these illegal people want citizenship they should join the army and prove they are willing to risk their lives for this nation and not just leach off of it.

  290. Diana says:

    I am so happy Obama Our new president wants to give us a opportunity for this dream act. & what i hate is when people start hating on us immigrants ? Whats the deal we are just here to work and have a better life. I am a highschool student and i was raised here i see no problem so stop trippin. well anyways my only question maybe someone can answer is that is this secure? what if i don’t qualify and i get deported ? i do not want that My son was born here and i do not want him to get raised to where i was born he speaks english and spanish and so do i and i understand its better being here then someone where else where we do not reconize well just someone please answer my question because i really want to keep studying and working and i love this new idea… please and thank you* God bless Obama and his family. -Diana

    • Kelsey says:

      And one more thing to those people crying about how people can be so hateful toward them. Let me paint you a picture. My husband works 12 hour days 7 days a week. He has to work so hard because we do not get anything for free like you immigrants do. Not only is he working his ass off to provide for his own family but he is also working his ass off to be taxed and give you free food, put your kids trough school and keep a fucking roof over you head and your 15 kids heads. Yes there are quite a few of us who are pretty ticked because I see my husband for 5 minutes in the morning before he leaves for work. I have a meal with my husband twice a year on thanksgiving and Christmas. But I’m thrilled you get to have a better life while my husband misses out on watching his son grow into a wonderful young man.

      • ron says:

        suck it up you stupid american girl, the reason why your husband is away all the time is because he has a nice foreign mistress that is nice to him and really gets it on with him and is not fat and ugly like you, he is tired of your bitching, demanding and complaining , get off your prescription pills better and get to the gym, and do yourself a favor keep your mouth shut!! it would wonders for you

    i have a question,i come to us when im 15 almost 16 but i live with my brother,i never went to school when i turn to 16 start working, i can prove that and my brother too can prove with letter from work,i can still qualify for defered action.?

  292. Velvet says:

    Emotionally have been disturbed for a while and i came to a conclusion that i was not meant to love and possible die of loneliness…..i tried all i could to get my ex

    back but all to no avail
    Alot of people here have been writing good things here on TOPIX about professor Lucy
    initially i never belived and of the posts and testimonials cos have once fallen victim to a fake spellcaster but the real mind in me gave it a trial
    i contacted him and he said some prayers for me and that was the begining of the solutions to my problems
    in a nut shell,my ex who happened to be the mother of my child came back to me after 7 days of the prayers
    professor Lucy is simply the most powerful spell caster one can ever trust
    you can also contact him if you are having the same type of predicament,contact him via :spirituallove@hotmail.com

  293. Sunny says:

    President Obama won the election! He is will likely pass the entire Dream Act, meaning those who sign up for Deferred Action will likely get a green card.

    There is nothing to fear now. Start as soon as possible to get your work permit, and eventually your green card.

    Call us for you free consultation. We will let you know if Deferred Action is the best immigration opportunity for you.

    If you have any questions or concerns, call us at 714-271-9575.

  294. Kelsey says:

    I find this utterly disgusting. Why are we allowing people who do not belong here to get an education? They are breaking the law by being here illegally so we are giving them a pat on the back and a degree?! This is bullshit! I am a white American having difficulty getting into classes I need because the people in “priority registration” (aka any foreigner with a child and no green card.) are filling up all the spots. Hey America here is a grand idea HELP THE PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY BELONG HERE!

    Hi I came to the US when I was 10 years old I graduated High school in 2007 with honors I went to community college for a year in 2009 cause I couldn’t afford more. I have the Temporary Protection Status (TPS) to be able to work and I have it since I was 14 or 15 I think. Do you think I’ll be able to qualify since I have the TPS. Would it be better than the TPS or no?

    Hello my name is Jonathan I’m 19 years old I graduated high school I left back to my country for 5 months and came back with a green card I have been living in the us ever since I was 6 and my plans next is to go to collage but I would want to know if the dream act could apply for me for citizenship cause it cause the illegal immigrants that are still living in the us gets it right away and not like me thAt I have clean record speak full English left the country voluntary and came back with a visa and got my citizenship I don’t care if I have to pay the money to get a us citizenship but at least it would be fare because I left before I was 18 back to Colombia and cameback when I was 18 missed 6 months of school and they screwed me over but thank god I graduated with a diploma not a GED and its hard for me to join military service because I try and study for the asvab but its so hard because I was out the us getting a green card and people don’t understand that and I have been living here 13 years my mother already can get a citizenship and my dad get able to get his next year but what could I do to get a citizenship faster then waiting 5 years without getting married but sucks if they give illegal alien citizenship without them doing a huge effort and going back to there countries it was hard for me because I been living in us for 13 and never been back also my education got seers over but I still mange to graduate with high school diploma it’s hard now cause my next step I want to be flight school but the only way to gain a citizenship is three the military but its hard because of the studying at this point I don’t know what to I would like to go to collage to get my basic done because I can’t seem to past the test and I’m happy to be back in the USA I’m grateful I have no record or anything bad and it’s just doing the right thing kind of back fired at me and would suck to just see people getting citizenship a without doing my process and waiting and if I still apply for the dream act I would go for it and join collage

      first of all,,, is not a citizenship is just a work permit for those immigrants that was brought to the US when they were underage , who are here illegally that went or go to school and they have to become residents first ,but is a long way before residency cause they have to renew permit several times before . but if u have a residency already there is no way u can turn citizen any faster unless u serve the army or any military service for at least 3 years i think, than upon discharge u automatically become citizen,even if u are dead do to service .

    Hello, my name is Amy and I’m 17. I’m just starting to apply to college and I need to be able to prove Florida residency. The thing is my parents don’t have legal residency in Florida so I’m classified as a non florida resident and will have to pay out of state tuition that is twice the amount of in state tution. I wanted to see if I’m able to qualify for the Dream Act if I am a US Citizen but my parents are not. I was born in the US and have lived in Florida ever since I was 6 years old. I went to elementary school in Florida and I am currently enrolled in a Florida highschool taking early college classes at St. Petersburg College. Plus I don’t have any criminal charges or records. Will I still qualify for the Dream Act if I’m already a US citizen, but I need to prove Florida residency? I’ll really appreciate it if someone could answer this question or if anyone could give me some more information on this Act.

  302. todd says:

    I have a friend that is a immigrant. He has been in ice for a while because of drug charges. While there he signed himself out of the country because he thought he was going to lose the case. However the charges got dropped. Now he wants to stay. Can he now stay in the us even though he originally signed himself out of the country?

  304. John Mason says:

    The filthy beaners need to go back where are from.t They are dirty lazy cockroaches. That’s where cockroaches came from from a Mexican whit from beaner land.
    You are taking the life style that uus legal Americans once had. You breed little beaner gangsters. The women are only good for sex until they are 20 or so then theyjust look get fat just look at their mothers. So mexican girls need to give up the pussy until they are 20 then go back and the filthy hombres need to just stay there. Thaits bullshit Americans are not wanting to do the jobs the beaners are doing. The beaners are terrible English speakers and terrible costomervice at cashiers cause they are racist and give better service to beaners. You need to speak english in USA.. that’s all you see is beaners in all the jobs. Just go to any fast food place and try to order something in English. I would love even a dishwashing job but you beaners have all those jobs too. I used to wash dishes and I lik the hard work. But now I can’t do what I can fall back to in times of needing a job. You beaners cry about you not being able to live here illegally or legally, when I can’t get to live in other countries like Mexico the process and requirements to get citizenship there is way harder than what you cockroaches have here. So stop whinning. You botch Mexican girls need to give the pussy up at will and stop taking our lifestyles we once had. Don’t whine about us taking your lands cause you where to cowardly to protect your own country. Leave our wateane won’t want America to be a cesspool . We need to install landmines and gun turrets along the border. Kill them all accept the women until they get fat and ugly like their mother’s. Chinga tu madres p uti.. puto faggots. And no our white women don’t like you greasy dirty beaner weirdos lol so don’t even look at them.

  305. John Mason says:

    Also you cowards and putahs are allways delaying lines cause your too stupid to follow simple instructions and don’t speak English. You beaners need to control your cockroach children also. They are allways screaming being loud and disrespectfull and you just allow them to do this. Wherever there is a long line somewhere in USA there is a cockroach at the front delaying the process. Go home. Your not welcome here.

  306. Born And Raised In Mexico says:

    Wow!! John Mason you are retarded white redneck, you are really sick! What do you hope to achieve with your stupid comments???.

    If you are going to post in a public forum, learn how to write in the English language instead of writing like a moron.

    Shame on America that allows this idiot to still exist.

  308. Josh says:

    The real reason the government is giving out all of its money is so that we help out the less fortunate. This is so when you all die you can at least tell god that you gave your money to some poor immigrants because the way i see it everyone on this forum is going to hell for the disreguard for respect for one another. Everyone in this world has let so much hate into there lives which was Lucifers plan all along and everyone doesn’t relize this and when the apocalypse comes to pass what will god judge upon you?

  309. david says:

    hi ive been here since 2001 and came in with my visa but my visa currently expired but i been living here since then. i graduated elementary, middle school and high school i also got in trouble when i was 16 with the law but never got deported. i went to college but can i still apply for the dream act ? and would they approve it ?

  310. Maja says:

    I just turned 17 a few weeks ago. I was brought here when I was only a year old. I grew up here and have went to school all my life in SC. However, I did go to Mexico for two years. I attended my 5th and 6th grade year of intermediate school there, and came back in perfect timing to begin middle school (early August of 2007). I’m not a citizen or resident. My visa has expired. I’m currently a junior In high school and graduating (hs) in 2014, but am in the top 5% of my graduating class right now. I also have no criminal record. I just don’t know what I’m going to do if I’m not able to apply for colleges here, I want to soooooo badly further my education & get my degree in this country, considering the fact that it has some of the best academic and athletic wise universities & colleges. Ive been working very hard to apply and get into where i want too, and knowing that i wont be able to as of right now, drives me crazy! I don’t even qualify for the majority of scholarships as well as even being able to apply for federal student loans due to the fact that I am not a citizen. I think i do qualify for everything the Dream Act requires, except for being here 5 consecutive years prior to the bill passing..? Does this mean I’m going to have to wait? Is it even guaranteed if I do? Has the bill even passed? Will it take too long? Please someone help! I am so stressed & confused!! Everything feels pointless right now!!

  311. YAris says:

    I think that all those people who think that immigrants come here to take there jobs , and worrying in things they shouldnt worry or stress about! Get a job and stop the hating over immigrants ! There so much hate when the immigrants come here to work and provide there families , and also provides the americans with the food they eat , i dont see white people in the field working there ass off like they do and yall still got the nerves to talk crap! Like seriously shut up all those haters! GOd is gud and his doing what its best for this nation and all those immigrants because “Mexicans ” arent the only immigrants get that in your heads!! if yall people dnt have nothing nice to say dnt open your mouths! Geat educated first and go find a job and stop bieng in other people business ! god bless all the Dreamers !!!!!!!!!!!! We got this ! weather you like it or not!

  312. Helping a Friend says:

    I have a question. A friend of mine came to this country illegally over 15 years ago. When he came he obtained a license using a different name than his. Years later he obtained a license with his real name and a green card. Back in October he had to go to DMV and straighten out this mess. He would like to get his citizenship and is scheduled to take the test in January.

    Question: Can he be deported for this? Can he go to jail for this?

    Thank you all for your response!
    Peace, Love & Light

    To all the Dreamers that have contacted my office and are married to a U.S. Citizen.
    KEEPING YOUR FAMILY TOGETHER!!!!
    The USCIS has recently posted a proposed rule on March 30, 2012. It proposes to allow aliens in the United States to apply for I-601 Waivers while in the United States. Previously, in order to obtain an immigrant visa, these waivers needed to be filed at the US Consulate in the foreign country. Until the waiver was adjudicated and approved by the USCIS in the USA, the consulate could not move forward with further immigrant visa process. Obviously, this meant that the alien had to spend a long time in the foreign country separated from his or her spouse and children. The proposed USCIS I-601 Waiver process alleviates that problem somewhat by permitting the applicant to file a waiver with the USCIS in the United States while they are still in the USA. If the waiver is approved, then the alien can proceed to the foreign country and have the visa interview at the US consulate in that country. This will reduce the wait outside the United States from a minimum of several months to perhaps just a few weeks. Please contact me for any additional questions Rita Garcia 714-271-9575.

    I went to McDonald’s and tried to order a frapachino,

    The female beaner did not know what I meant even though I was pointing to a sign trying to tell her which drink I wanted. 3 times I tried. I gave up and left frustrated and ashamed once again at what has come to America and an American symbol the McDonald’s hamburger fast food chain. Beaners are fucking everything up. They are too stupid to be in costomer service or any job that is truely American symbol. Loosers. Every ducking one of them. Cockroaches.La cucaracha. Doctors should cut there throughts when they are born and piss in there throught holes.

  317. Carol says:

    My boyfriend is 39 years old. He came to the US on a tourist visa 15 years ago. He stayed here ever since. He graduated high school in Mexico. He attends college in the US. No criminal history. His oldest child is near the end of his dream act application. He has 2 US born children. He sees his children often. The youngest is 10. What is the best route to seeking citizenship?

  318. Abby says:

    If they get a wok permit but leave college after a semester will they lose it? It seems wrong to let them keep it.

  319. gizzy says:

    my personal thoughts about this dream act is that we dont need any more people in the united states!!! with the economy the way it is its already hard for legal citizens to find jobs. why are we coming up with more laws that promises the illegal immigrants the the right to work. i personally think that we should get rid of them and send them back to their countries. it is not fair for them to take our rights as natural born citizens. there’s a lot of immigrants i know that make good money and don’t pay taxes and yet get government help because they LIE!!! and they get away with it they also find a way to claim taxes because like i said they LIE… its not fair that they’re the ones the government helps the most. we just need them out of the country!!!
