America is a land of opportunity that every person across the globedesires to go and make a living. Millions of people includingchildren illegally have migrated into American soil over the years.This lot of people constitute immigrant students who have come to bereferred as the dreamer students. This is a group of bright immigrantstudents who are not documented and are not legal American citizens.In a vast majority of the states in the United States, theseimmigrant students do not have access to funds that can see themthrough college education. In the state of New York, this is a vitalissue since it directly affects the future of these immigrantstudents. The federal government does not offer any funds or any formof financial aid to dreamer students in the United States. As aresult, the dreamer students can only rely on the states andcommunity’s funding in order to accomplish their educational andcareer goals.

Whereas in noway was the bill aimed at legalizing the dreamer students as Americancitizens, the New York state senate voted against the Dream Act. Theconsequence of this vote is that the 200,000 undocumented studentshave had their dreams shut right in front of them.
60-70 percent of Americans have been pushing congress to amend theimmigration act. In other words, Americans who are in support of theundocumented students need for financial aid are calling for theamendment of the immigration Act 2014 in order to recognize theimmigrant students.

In thevote that had 30 votes in favor of and 29 votes against the Act, onlytwo democrats voted against the Act. The consequences of the state ofNew York refusing to allocate funds for the dreamer students areimmense.
