An editorial Saturday in the L.A. Times argues that it is time to “give undocumented young people the opportunity to earn conditional permanent residency if they meet certain requirements.” In other words, why it’s time to pass the Dream Act now:
Backers of the bill — known among themselves as “Dreamers” — have been fasting and marching and demonstrating for months. Some have publicly outed themselves as undocumented. They have put faces and names to the 65,000 students who graduate each year from high school into permanent limbo, unable either to work legally or, often, go to college.
