Immigration bill: What happens to youngest undocumented children?
from Education Week
As many as 1 million undocumented children who were brought to the United States at a very young age would have to wait as long as their parents — at least 13 years &dmash; to pursue citizenship under the current version of the bipartisan immigration reform measure being debated and shaped (and reshaped) in the U.S. Senate. These so-called "little DREAMers" would miss out on the speedier path to citizenship that their older siblings and peers would benefit from under the DREAM provisions in the legislation. That provision — essentially a version of the long-stalled DREAM Act — would create a five-year path to citizenship for those who are already old enough to have graduated from high school, earned a GED, completed two years of college or spent four years in the military.
