    Lawyers agree

    Answered . There's no such thing as 'dream reform' or the 'dream act'. Obama created DACA as a watered down version of this proposed legislation to side-step congress' apathy towards helping undocumented youth.

    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . The US Senate voted in favor of the Dream Act last year by a vote of 68 to 32 but the House of Representatives, which is controlled by the Republicans, oppose this legislation. There just isn't the political will in Congress to agree on one if the simplest and most fair legislative proposals that has been debated for many years, the Dream Act. By executive action, President Obama approved Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) on June 15 , 2012. Are you sure you are not qualified for this program? It is very solar to the Dream Act that is stuck in Congress, granting good immigration benefits though not permanent residence is a path to citizenship (with some exceptions involving a procedure too long to describe here). Consult with an immigration lawyer and best of luck.

    Answered . There is no Dream Act. Comprehensive Immigration Reform is still being debated in the US House of Representatives.
