DREAM Act bill would have most impact in California, Texas

DREAM Act bill could provide legal status for some young illegal immigrants.


Immigrants in Texas and California would be the biggest winners if Congress and President Barack Obama support legislation allowing young illegal immigrants to acquire U.S. legal status based on education and military service, according to a study released last week.

The analysis by the Migration Policy Institute, a nonprofit group that researches immigration issues, concluded that the bill introduced last year could put approximately 2.1 million youth and young adults on a potential path to citizenship.
The institute estimated that only 38 percent of potential beneficiaries — 825,000 people — would likely obtain permanent legal status through the education and military routes set out in the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, or DREAM Act.
“Many potential DREAM Act beneficiaries would face difficulties in meeting the legislation’s higher education or military service requirements,” said Margie McHugh, co-author of the study. Inability to pay college tuition and problems with English proficiency would reduce the number of potential beneficiaries, she said.
California would have the most potential beneficiaries with 553,000 youngsters theoretically able to meet the requirements, the report said.  Texas would come in second, with just over 250,000 possible beneficiaries, followed by Florida with 192,000, New York with 146,000 and Arizona, with 114,000.
The Migration Policy Institute report concludes that the DREAM Act would have a wide reach.more

Hardcore Gangs Hit Ohio Suburbs GANGS IN THE ’BURBS
Subversive element creeping beyond Columbus’ borders
Last year, Westerville North High School suspended two students who flashed MS-13 hand signs and drew gang insignia during an English-asa-second-language class. MS-13, or Mara Salvatrucha, is a notoriously violent street gang with roots in Los Angeles. It was formed by immigrants from El Salvador.

Gang crime isn’t nearly as serious or common in the suburbs as in some Columbus neighborhoods, but suburban schools and police departments are increasingly on watch.
"It’s not so centralized in the inner city as it used to be," said Pat Brooks, a veteran Columbus police gang unit officer.

Suburban police call Brooks and his colleagues when they suspect gang activity in their jurisdictions.

Most of the crack dealers in Reynoldsburg are gang members who live in Columbus, said Tye Downard, a Reynoldsburg police narcotics detective.
