Making Dreams Come True

    A Dream Deferred…

    See April 2009 Editorial for more on the DREAM Act

    Each year, thousands of promising students go to school eager to achieve their dreams of success, only to realize at some point along the way that their immigration status prevents them from reaching their full potential in American society. Among them are gifted scholars, dedicated community members, and future leaders who desire nothing more than to give back to our country. Their stories highlight the need to reform our broken immigration system and the urgency for leadership and action on this issue. This week, our friends in the United We DREAM coalition are hosting a “Week of Action” to bring attention to the struggles faced by these youth and call for action on immigration reform.

    Join them and tell your members of Congress that it is time to take up immigration reform that gives immigrant youth an opportunity to contribute fully to our society once and for all!

    Our country gains nothing by squandering the dreams and talent of these students—urge your members of Congress to support the “Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act” (S. 729) and “American Dream Act” (H.R. 1751) today!
