NCC students march for DREAM Act

Dozens of students and staff marched at Nassau Community College yesterday in support of a bill that would let some undocumented students gain citizenship.

The DREAM Act would make citizenship possible for certain students who have been in the country more than five years and graduated from U.S. high schools. After completing two years of college or military service, they would be granted permanent residency.

Three members of Long Island's congressional delegation are co-sponsors of the bill.

Critics argue the bill wouldn?t be fair to those who enter the U.S. legally.
