Letter: Dreamers should be allowed to stay and become citizens
Placeholder Image
I truly agree with the majority of South Carolinians to see the so called “Dreamers” -- young immigrants brought to the United States illegally as children -- allowed to stay in the country with a chance to become citizens. The remarks by President Barack Obama at Cairo University, Cairo, Egypt, on June 4, 2009, come to mind. He said: “The dream of opportunity for all people has not come true for everyone in America, but its promise exists for all who come to our shores … and I believe that America holds within her the truethe that regardless of race, religion, or station in life, all of us share common aspirations – to live in peace and security, to get an education and to work with dignity; to love our families, our communities, and our God.”
