The Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act (DREAM) is a bi-partition bill introduced to Congress in 2001 and reintroduced in 2009 by Utah Senator Orion Hatch and Illinois (D) Senator Richard Durbin created to help youths brought the United States by undocumented parents as children who are now graduating from High School not only find a path to citizenship for themselves, but also be allowed to continue their education into college and beyond.

To qualify for the DREAM Act an applicant must adhere to several very strict guidelines that include the following:

  • The applicant must have entered the United States prior to their 16th birthday.
  • The applicant must have been in the United States for at least 5 consecutive years prior to the bill passing.
  • The applicant must have graduated from High School, obtained a GED or currently be enrolled in College, a Trade School or another type of Institution for Higher Learning.
  • The applicant must currently be 30 and under at the time they are applying.
  • The applicant must have good moral standing (no previous or current convictions).

With all of those requirements met and The DREAM Act is passed a person will be granted a temporary, conditional allowance to remain in the Untied States for up to 6 years provided they follow the next set of guidelines.
