Woman writing in a meeting


  • ACE advocates for comprehensive immigration reform that would support undocumented students who were brought to the United States as young children as well as talented international students who would like to remain in this country following the completion of their studies here—particularly those with science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) degrees. The federal Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, which ACE has supported since it was first introduced in 2001, would provide such students an expedited path to citizenship if they accomplish academic goals or serve in our military. ACE also supports reforms of the non-immigrant visa process, particularly the H-1B visa, which would enhance our nation’s recruitment and retention of highly skilled international students and employees.
