If you have been following the immigration debate, you might know that the DREAM Act is one of the provisions that applies to young people who came here with their parents. It essentially allows these kids to have a fair chance to compete with every one else for access to education and jobs.
My colleague Theresa Thanjan and I have made a music video for a song written by a couple of kids about the DREAM Act.
Some of the stories about these young people are just heartbreaking. This American Life has a story about one such girl who is struggling to get an education.
