Loretta Sanchez has repeatedly refused to cosponsor the DREAM, stating that she prefers a CIR first policy. However, like Brad Sherman, she is highly unlikely to fail to support the DREAM if it ever comes up for a stand alone vote, and will support it as a component of CIR.

Thank you for contacting me regarding H.R. 1751 the American Dream Act. I appreciate the opportunity to respond to your concerns and provide you with a legislative update.

As you know, the American Dream Act would restore States' rights to determine residency requirements for higher education benefits. Additionally, this bill would provide a path to U.S. legal residency for students, and military personnel who were brought to the United States before they were 16 years old, and have been in the United States for five years prior to when this bill becomes law.

The American Dream Act was introduced on March 19, 2009, by Rep. Howard Berman (D-CA) and has been referred to the Education and Labor and the Judiciary Committees. Please be assured that if this bill is brought to the floor of the House of Representatives for a vote, I will keep your thoughts in mind.

Throughout my legislative career, I have led the fight to help working families by improving our schools, reducing crime, protecting our seniors, safeguarding our environment, and lowering the tax burden on the middle class. I will continue to fight for these and other issues that affect our district.
