The New DREAM Act?

As with any piece of legislation, compromises are made, and late word that a “new” DREAM Act was submitted had me thinking:  What the hell did we give up?

Until it is published, I’ve only heard from folks on the inside who tell me that the Act remains basically the same, except:

  • 10 years of temporary status vs. the previous 6 years
  • Specifically barring DREAMers from access to health care subsidies etc.
  • Age cap is 30 vs. the previous of 35
  • Removal of the language that would have not punished states for providing in-state tuition

I’ll hold my comments until I do more analysis.

THE RALLY at the Mickey Leland Federal Building in Downtown Houston is today. Join a host of organizations and smile for my camera at 3PM.
