For decades, Congress has failed to enact meaningful immigration reform. Even when it comes to the country’s DREAMers, or immigrants who were brought to the country as children and whose only home has been in the United States, Congress has offered no protection. In 2010, a group of Democratic and Republican legislators introduced the DREAM Act. The bill provided a pathway to citizenship for these young immigrants and would have also cleared the way for states to allow undocumented students to receive in-state tuition at some colleges and universities. Despite having the support of a bipartisan majority of senators and the overwhelming support of the American people, the DREAM Act was killed by a Republican filibuster, and serious congressional action on immigration reform has not been considered since.
