Ok, you put your butt on the line, and you get permanent residency.  Seems a fair trade to me.

This isn't much of a stretch. We've given immigrants - even those with just temporary visas - expedited citizenship if they serve honorably in our military for awhile now. To extend that to the Dreamers - young people who were brought here illegally when they were still under the age of 15 and who have lived here for years - isn't much different. They're people who are willing to risk their lives to defend our country; we have more reasons to applaud them than to punish them.
