    America is a nation of immigrants. More than that this country is run my immigrants. Native born Americans are not interested in education or business. So, we need to stop hate groups like and Heritage foundation and treat the immigrants fairly. No body wants to come to US illegally. It is because of these meaningless laws that leads to illegal immigration. There laws should be reformed and thats why we need comprehensive immigration reform. This is not amnesty and it is a rational and practical approach and it is needed for the development of this country.

    Congress should exemplify how America recognizes and encourages resilience and diligence by passing the DREAM Act. The fact that these immigrant students are pursuing college education is proof that they have the right kind of attitude America needs to rebuild its economy. Some of them even thrive despite their limited resources and seemingly hopeless prospects about their future here. They chose to be here because they also believe in what America stands for – hope for a bright future.
