What would the passing of the D.R.E.A.M. Act mean for immigrants?

The D.R.E.A.M. Act (Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act) was a proposal that said if you as an immigrant meet certain requirements, you can become a citizen of the United States. This will make it so that immigrants who came here previously and have gotten an education, given back to society, and have been in the US since they were young, can now gain citizen ship and give back even more. This is great news for the United States as a whole and the act should definitely be approved.

The criteria that an immigrant must meet are as follows: They must have arrived in the U.S. before the age of 16, they must have lived in the U.S. for 5 or more years, they must have graduated high school and been accepted into a higher institution of learning such as a college or university, must be between the ages of 12 and 35, and they must have good moral character. Surely if an immigrant can pass all of these tests, they should have the right to become a citizen in the country.
