Protesters: GOP Candidates Don't DREAM Halfway

• by Teresa Tomassoni

"Dreamers" — or undocumented immigrant youth who came to the U.S. illegally when they were young — have grown up in public schools and many of them want to go to college to become lawyers and scientists.

They also want to become American. But if Republican candidates make it to the White House, it's likely that won't be possible, unless the young immigrants opt to join the military. But this type of hard line immigration stance might make it difficult for candidates to become president.

A week before Arizona's GOP debate, Mitt Romney rallied supporters inside the Mesa Amphitheater near Phoenix. And another group rallied outside.

The small group of immigrant students protested Romney's vow to veto the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act, more commonly known as the DREAM Act. The bill would provide a path to citizenship for undocumented youth under 35 years of age if they serve in the military or go to college.
