How can immigrant children achieve citizenship and why should we let them?

Op-posers of the Arizona Immigration Laws strain the fact that immigrants do not have a proper chance to become a legal citizen, this is one of the main reasons for supporting the DREAM Act.  This specifically favors immigrant children who arrive over the border with their parents. It would require immigrant students/children to meet a few fair requirements to stay in the U.S.A. and be granted citizenship. First off they would have to have proof of arriving in the U.S before sixteen years of age, and they must register with Selective Service.  Other requirements include having evidence of living here for a least five years since their arrival, be between the ages of twelve to thirty during the bill’s activation. Finally they must have graduated from a United States high school, or obtain a GED, or been admitted to college. Once they have met these simple requirements they may call our country their rightful home.

Furthermore the DREAM Act would serve as a stepping stone to a more efficient and productive America. First having more citizens would greatly benefit us because it would increase our skilled work force, making the U.S. more worldly competitive. Also it would boost our recruitment pool for U.S. military forces, and in return making our country safer and even more skillful.  Lastly it would increase government profits by $2.3 billion over the next ten years.

In conclusion having these young immigrant children with dreams can make our country a safer place to live. In addition it will also increase our skilled work force, and raise our country’s total revenue along with its productivity. So overall immigration has its greatly beneficial attributes.
