DREAM act to reward illegal students in play.

Edumacation: Just because your parents made a bad choice doesn't mean the taxpayer should have to subsidize your education by getting tuition breaks not afford to citizens and legal residents.

A bill known as the DREAM Act would give illegal immigrants a conditional visa that would turn into permanent residency if they complete two years of college or serve honorably for two years in the armed forces. It also would allow them to qualify for in-state college tuition. Cecilia Munoz, vice president for policy at the National Council of La Raza, a Hispanic civil rights organization, said the DREAM Act — short for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors — is "very, very likely to be on the table" as part of a larger overhaul of the nation's immigration laws. Rep. Lincoln Diaz-Balart, R-Fla., a principal sponsor of the legislation in the House, is planning to introduce a new version early next year.
