A libertarian reason to oppose the DREAM Act

P.L. Fraietta's got the reason at YAL:

"If we look past the question of whether or not illegal immigrants should have a path to citizenship, we can see that this proposal is simply another attempt at government led social engineering. Why make the requirement two years of college or military service? Because it is government's belief that attending college or joining the military molds 'better' citizens."

Those of you who know me know I'm very pro-immigration, and have stirred up some heated debates at this website before, with readers who don't think we should open our borders quite as much as I'd like to. But I've got to hand it to Fraietta, this isn't a bad reason to oppose the DREAM Act.
