Suro – WaPo "Dream Act"

The Washington Post published an article by Faculty Fellow Roberto Suro about Congress’ recent vote against “the Dream Act.” The bill, if passed, would allow for children of illegal immigrants with “good character” to attain US citizenship upon their completion of a college education or service in the military. “The immediate task is to clean up the mess caused by inaction,” writes Suro “and that is going to require compromises on all sides. Next, we should reexamine the scope of policy proposals. After a decade of sweeping plans that went nowhere, working piecemeal is worth a try at this point.”
