(Link) Looking around the Internet, I see the majority of people are opposed to this, saying that the people who are eligible are "criminals." Many people appear to be missing the point of this Act. A main requirement is "Must have entered the United States before the age of 16 (i.e. 15 and younger)." I really don't know what else to say. I have a friend who came here when she was five. Now, she is 17 and doesn't have NEARLY enough money for college, and applying for scholarships is extremely difficult and risky. She can't get a job because she doesn't have a Social Security Number or working permit. It seems likely that she's not going to college all because of the actions of her parents. I can't see how ANYBODY could call her or anybody else in her situation a "criminal." I'm just curious to see what other MR members have to say about this.
