A Backdoor Path to Amnesty?

In this post at the Foundry, Rob Bluey asks 5 question regarding the Dream Act--they include:

  1. Would this endanger the lives of children by encouraging greater trafficking across the increasingly dangerous U.S.-Mexico border?
  2. Is the proposal fair to the estimated 4.4 million people who are waiting to come to the U.S. legally?
  3. Would it promote greater family chain migration, resulting in double or triple the number of illegal aliens ultimately receiving amnesty?
  4. What is to prevent DREAM Act legislation from becoming a vehicle for an amnesty like the Senate bill?
  5. What would make this different from the past proposals that have been repeatedly rejected by Congress?
