The existence of a sizable population of 'DREAMers' in the United States has prompted questions about unlawfully present aliens' eligibility for admission to public institutions of higher education, in-state tuition, and financial aid. The term DREAMer is widely used to describe aliens who were brought to the United States as children and raised here but lack legal immigration status. As children, DREAMers are entitled to public elementary and secondary education as a result of the Supreme Court's 1982 decision in Plyler v. Doe. Once DREAMers complete high school, however, they may have less access to public higher education.
