"I would work to get a signable version [of the DREAM Act] which would be the military component. I think any young person living in the United States who happened to have been brought here by their parents when they were young should have the same opportunity to join the American military and earn citizenship which they would have had from back home.
We have a clear provision that if you live in a foreign country, and you are prepared to join the American military, you can, in fact, earn the right to citizenship by serving the United States and taking real risk on behalf of the United States. That part of the DREAM Act I would support. I would not support the part that simply says everybody who goes to college is automatically waived for having broken the law."
