    Answered . The DREAM Act has not passed so we do not know any limitations or requirements that will be part of qualifying. As soon as any legislation is passed it is best to contact an experienced immigration attorney to assist with determining if you qualify or not.

    Answered . The DREAM Act has yet to pass, so we don't really know if it would at this point. Normally, if the U.S. citizen is entilted to it, they don't hold it as evidence of being a public charge. Again, we don't know for sure, but maybe they will continue with that practice.
