Is your senator standing up for immigrant youth?
The “Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act” (S. 729) is a bill that—if enacted—would enable certain immigrant youth to fully contribute to this country by opening doors to higher education or military service. These young people have grown up in America and have embraced our country’s values. They have every desire to contribute to their communities and society, yet are prevented from doing so because of their immigration status. Many live in fear of being sent back to a country that they don’t remember or consider home.
Despite incredible challenges, many of them have distinguished themselves as exceptional students and community leaders. Their courage and dedication should serve as an example to our leaders. Each day that Congress fails to act, the dreams and lives of undocumented youth are placed on hold and their talents suppressed while our country is deprived of their contributions.
Below is a list of senators who have not yet cosponsored the “DREAM Act." Send a message to your senators telling them that it is time to show real leadership by standing up for immigrant youth, and thank current cosponsors for advancing real solutions to our country’s broken immigration system!
