DREAM… of a Better America

Now that we have discussed the financial pros and cons of the situation at hand, it’s important that we address the impact it will have on society. If the DACA is eliminated, it will have a negative impact on society; however, implementing the DREAM Act will have a positive impact on society. I’m going to explain the reasoning for each assertion:
The DACA elimination will have a negative impact on society. This decision will cause 800,000 people to be eligible for deportation. This Image result for immigrantssituation will harm American society because it will be a societal loss. Within the group of 800,000, there are many individuals that contribute greatly to America itself. In the group, there are doctors, lawyers, entrepreneurs and many other contributing roles. This loss is significant because it will contribute to a decrease in the quality of American society. Additionally, most of DACA beneficiaries are college graduates and/or military. If these people are eliminated, there will be consequences for America such as a lower number of military personnel as well as a lower number of educated citizens.

Clearly, the DACA elimination is a poor decision for more than one reason. More importantly, though, the DREAM Act has potential to improve society. Here’s how:

The DREAM Act has potential to benefit society in three ways. One way is it will help America look better, statistically speaking. What this means is that it will help the US’s proportion of college graduates and it will also help the US’ average income nationwide. This is because DREAM Act beneficiaries salaries will likely increase as a result of their college education Another way the DREAM Act will help society truly be better. Factually speaking, immigrants are a good addition to society. Typically immigrants are better business owners and are more likely to be a doctor. With the intake of so many immigrants, there will be an overall improvement to society due to the quality of the people. The final way is related to the standard of living in the U.S. The DREAM Act has potential to increase the standard of living by decreasing the unemployment rate. The act itself will create over a million jobs in twenty years. The standard of living will also be increased by an influx of funds to help programs such as social security and Medicare. Citizens will be able to provide for themselves sufficiently if this betterment of society truly occurs.

DREAM Act will help society truly be better. Factually speaking, immigrants are a good addition to society. Often immigrants are more successful entrepreneurs- eBay, Google, AT&T, Kohl’s and many other big companies were founded by immigrants. Also, immigrants are statistically more likely than native-born Americans to be a doctor or surgeon. With the intake of so many immigrants, there will be an overall improvement to society due to the quality of the people.

The final way is related to the standard of living in the U.S. The DREAM Act has potential to increase the standard of living by decreasing the unemployment rate.

Citizens will be able to provide for themselves sufficiently if this betterment of society truly occurs.

When Trump made his decision, the decision to eliminate the DACA, do you think he thought about this impact it would have? It’s not likely he did. Regardless, now is our chance as the youth of America to consider the impact and use our resources to push for the DREAM Act. We need to be relentless and contact our representatives, protest the decision, and spread awareness. Not only is the DREAM Act a positive decision for the economy, it is also a positive decision for society.

  1. Hey Katie,
    This was a really well written discussion of the current situation. It is really hard to see students, and professionals who were basically raised as Americans, face the potential of being deported. I completely agree with your point that America will lose many of its working professionals. Many of these children, as you said, have grown up, and have been educated. It is very hard to tell someone who was raised an American, that they are no longer welcome in their home. I enjoyed that you specifically outlined these effects in you blog. I look forward to your further commentary!
