October 2nd In-class Writing

By reading at Amber Floyd’s “Dream Deferred,” the entire article revolves around the Dream Act. Dream Act as “commonsense legislation drafted by both Republicans and Democrats that would give students who grew up in the United States a chance to contribute to our country’s well-being by serving in the U.S. Armed Forces or pursuing a higher education” (Cited by Mirada in 2014-2015, p. 183). Floyd shows us the three main arguments from “dream act.” Firstly, the act promotes the ideal of injustice. The act helps the children but undermines the whole family (Floyd, p.184). Secondly, regarding our economy, increasing taxes to help fund immigrants to go to college will only bring another burden to American families (Floyd, p.184). Finally, focus on colleges and universities themselves, which may change the price of tuition for these students due to their financial situation. Each of these problems, however, will greatly affect the agencies that will accept the bill, which could take years to resolve and ultimately resolve them(Floyd, p.185). Floyd’s perspective is that even undocumented immigrants still have the right to have their education, specific for those innocent children. Since there has majority student who spent their whole life in the United States and studies well, just because their undocumented identity they are not able to go to the college.
