Reform or Revolution? continued

Air date: 
Wed, 04/02/2014 - 8:00am - 9:00am
Short Description: 
Hosted by Paul Roland.

Once a hot topic of passionate discussion, the question "Reform or Revolution?" seems to have lost its relevance and punch. Sounds kinda quaint and archaic. Does "Revolution" mean anything in the age of Portlandia? Can we imagine anything outside the box of constituted legal institutions? Can we yet shake ourselves from our mental conditionintg and feelings of powerlessness and detachment in the face of accelerating Disaster? Can we find common ground despite the hyper-individualization we've been socialized into? My God, doesn't anyone care??? Sorry, got carried away. Well, tune in and if you've got something to say, call in. 503-231-8187.

 The Dream Act

The DREAM Act ‒ introduced by Senators Richard Durbin of Illinois and Richard Lugar of Indiana and Rep. Howard Berman of California
and Lincoln Diaz-Balart of Florida‒ can solve this growing problem.

Under the rigorous provisions of the DREAM Act, undocumented young people could be eligible for a conditional path to citizenship in exchange for a mandatory two years in higher education or military service. Undocumented young people must also demonstrate good moral character to be eligible for and stay in conditional residency. At the end of the long process, the young person can have the chance to become an American citizen.
