There are some arguments the Dream Act, which protect undocumented children’s education and right.
The author quoted the word from Duhita Mahatmya of George Mason University “the Act promotes the rights of children over their parents, discourages family stability and unity, and impacts family interdependence negatively.”
She argues that although the Dream Act will be benefit to those children, it will also cause some problem in undocumented families which will be harmful to the children in reverse. Its not a thorough act to protect the undocumented students. I think it makes sense because only children can get benefit from it.
