A path to residency or citizenship is a good idea but there are certain points on the bill that I have concerns about. Children brought into the country illegally many times don’t know any other life. They are educated bin our school system, play sports in US peanut leagues and live an “American life”. For this reason, I oppose the requirements on the bill that speak to these children having to get a higher education or join the military. A person can be a contributing member of society without meeting this criteria and since the children had no say in coming here, I feel this places an undue burden on the child to pay for something that they had no power over. I won’t even get into the weeds about the cost and challenges of getting a higher education in this country. Also, the good moral character requirement isn’t something we would require of children born here yet we would require this of children raised here, my issue with this that young people don’t always make good choices and pinning the call of whether they get to stay on whether they have misdemeanors is draconian. Because if a kid graffitis a wall, they will get kicked out of the country. I understand the intent behind the requirement to keep out the “troublemakers” but this part of the bill is too vague and will cast out too many kids that are simply making stupid decisions. Remove these 2 requirements from the bill, then I think we may have something to work with, otherwise I say No.
