Students across the USA are lining up for the opportunity to live, study and work freely for America.
Minneapolis, MN. (MMD Newswire) June 1, 2009 -- Enquiries from US students have leapt through the roof since President Obama announced his support for the DREAM Act. "I support the Dream Act 100 per cent, in fact, I am fully committed to education, my administration has raised funds to be invested in education because I want more students to have the opportunity to go to college and have better access to resources such as scholarships and loans," - President Barack Obama.
Is this the first clear indication of US immigration reform coming our way?
Globalvisas.com, a world leading Immigration authority, with over a million visitors a year, reports today there has been a significant increase in the number of US students enquiring to study and work in the USA. From just 10 or 20 enquiries a month ago, Globalvisas.com are now receiving in excess of 500 enquiries a week asking about what the future holds for them and the USA.
Motivated students are literally queuing up to take advantage of the Dream Act if it becomes a reality. Liam Clifford, managing director of Globalvisas.com stated today: "The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act will be the first significant act of U.S. immigration reform in USA Immigration for some time. If this is a sign of things to come in USA Immigration it is a very positive sign. For years USA Immigration legislation has been lagging behind the rest of the world in attracting highly skilled individuals which it has relied on in the past to build the economy."
The DREAM Act is drawing support from industry leaders, high profile officials in the government, legal and education sectors, as well as the military, to name a few.
The DREAM Act has the potential to open doors to an estimated 65,000 kids who moved to the USA before their 16th birthday but are currently excluded from the American way of life because they don't have the right paperwork.
Why should these children be held responsible for the actions of their parents?
Liam Clifford went on to says: "During this time, the USA has consistently produced talent that showcases the American Dream on the world stage, people like Google founder Sergey Brin, from Russia, Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang, from Taiwan, and Intel co-founder Andy Grove from Hungary. Just imagine what America could be denying itself and the rest of world if we do not support the DREAM Act."
It's a widely known fact children of immigrant parents outperform their counterparts in the education system, instead of holding them back they should be encouraged.Notes to editors
