Canadian Citizen living in US, but not exactly sure of the complete criteria of the DREAM ACT
At this time, there is no DREAM Act. There is a program called Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) for certain immigrants who came to the United States at a young age, and graduated high school, got a GED, are currently in school and/or were honorably discharged from the armed forces. DACA does not lead to a path to legal status but does provide an opportunity to get work authorization in the United States. I recommend consulting with an experienced immigration attorney to find out if you may be eligible for DACA.
