The DREAM Act is a bipartisan proposal, which would create a pathway towards legalization for thousands of young students who were brought to the United States years ago as children. These children have grown up alongside our children, within our communities. They have mastered the English language and despite many barriers, have graduated from a U.S. high school and gone on to be accepted into a 2 or 4 year university or opted to serve in the U.S. armed forces.
Educating undocumented youth from kindergarten through 12th grade only to banish them to a permanent underclass or deport them from the only home they know is bad public policy which rips apart our hard-working immigrant families, wastes taxpayer dollars, and makes little moral or economic sense.
Let's bring these students out of the shadows, out from underground. Tell President Obama and Congress to pass the DREAM Act in 2009. Talented students and their families living in fear of raids and ripped apart by deportations, cannot afford to wait for change.
