Fall, 2003, and another smaller bill has made it through the senate. It’s called the Dream Act, and it offers in-state tuition to undocumented students and citizenship to those who graduate from college. The bill, as expected, is fervently embraced by the students themselves and by pro-immigration activists, and reviled by anti-immigration groups who see it as yet another offering of amnesty. The question is, will the bill survive the “mark-up,” where bills are hammered out between parties and senators one word at a time?
