The Trouble with the Dream Act

If you are researching a newly enacted policy or a bill that has been introduced, but never passed (like the Dream Act), the impact of the policy has not been assessed yet. Typically, research on the impact of a policy will take at least two years after implementation to appear.

You might want to look for similar policies at the state or federal level and see if any research has been done on those.
