I ask for your firm support in passing the common-sense DREAM Act, S. 729.
The DREAM Act is a measure that would provide a path to citizenship for qualified young people who are Americans in all but paperwork, provided they go to college or join the military. The bipartisan DREAM Act would generate $1.4 trillion in new income, and is supported by 70% of Americans.
If Congress fails to act now, America will lose another class of promising immigrant students and soldiers who have demonstrated hard work and a strong commitment to their communities.
I look forward to hearing about what you are doing to pass the DREAM Act.
