ABSTRACT
The article discusses the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act in the U.S. It cites that if passed by Congress, the act would make the long process of obtaining U.S. citizenship easier for illegal immigrants via conditional permanent residency. However, it is emphasized that the requirements under the said act make it almost impossible for an illegal immigrant to achieve citizenship.
