This website is very reliable and i don't think i would've ever looked into this website, because i don't really tend to be interested in the what goes on in the white house. This article pinpoints big picture reasons of why the DREAM ACT was necessary. A lot of the reasons are connected to American history and laws that are a part of America. In other words it is a "we did before, so why not again? what is the difference? "

Thank You, Harry Binswanger. 

 

“What has happened to America? When did the land of the free become “You can’t land here”? Did we fight a Civil War to end slavery, in order then to put a wall around the country and keep “undesirables” out? Did we fight against Nazism in order to make our own class of “untermenschen,” and to have petty tyrants demand: “Where are your papers?”

 

It is not enough to give “illegals” amnesty. These long-oppressed individuals deserve an official apology from our government.”

 

An apology is also owed by many others outside the government.

Why a Falling Birth Rate Is a Big Problem

Why a Falling Birth Rate Is a Big Problem | Atlas: DIY Immigration Activism | Scoop.it

by RICK NEWMAN, US News

It sounds like one of those stories you can safely ignore: The U.S. birth rate has hit a record low, led by a big drop in the portion of immigrant women having babies.

This development doesn't directly affect anybody, since it's one of those long-term societal trends that occurs in small increments and doesn't change the unemployment rate, the price of gas, the direction of the stock market or any of the big economic forces that make our lives better or worse today. And since the trend is strongest among immigrants, it sounds like maybe this is something happening in a shadowy part of the economy that doesn't matter all that much.

But it does matter, and if the trend persists, it could mean lower living standards for most Americans in the future.

Atlas DIY's insight:

Is immigration the solution to low birth rates in the United States?

Coffee Party USA's curator insight, December 16, 2012 2:38 AM

America's falling birth rate, and our expanding senior citizen population as Baby Boomers retire, make an immigration wave an economic and fiscal necessity.  Full article here.

A Dream Act Without the Dream

A Dream Act Without the Dream | Atlas: DIY Immigration Activism | Scoop.it
A Republican plan to offer undocumented immigrants a legal status but not citizenship may shimmer with promise but leads to the same no-future dead end.
Atlas DIY's insight:

Offering a path to legal status with no hope to citizenship in the future is in Opposite of the DREAM Act approach, and offers a half-hearted immaterial solution to a very real issue.

Why More Immigration, Not Less, Is Key to U.S. Economic Growth

Why More Immigration, Not Less, Is Key to U.S. Economic Growth | Atlas: DIY Immigration Activism | Scoop.it

By Charles Kenny for Bloomberg Business Week.

 

America's restrictive immigration laws are hurting the recovery and endangering the country's future...

 

Beyond the huge importance of immigrants to the U.S. economy today, three forces are making immigration reform more urgent: growing crackdowns on undocumented workers at the state level, which are already hurting farming and are likely to spread to other sectors, including construction; the aging of populations in the U.S. and Europe; and increasing opportunities in the developing world, which are luring home skilled immigrants the U.S. needs most.
