Take a moment and tell your representatives to give kids a chance. The DREAM Act will help kids who through no fault of their own came to the United States become citizens. As someone who has worked closely with many undocumented children - many are stunned to find out they're not actually citizens and are here illegally. Others view themselves as 100% American - just without papers - as this is the only country they've ever really known. And more importantly, it's the country they love and want to contribute to. These DREAM Act will give them that chance so tell your representatives to vote for the DREAM Act.
The DREAM Act is a bipartisan legislation ‒ pioneered by Sen. Orin Hatch [R-UT] and Sen. Richard Durbin [D-IL] ‒ that can solve this hemorrhaging injustice in our society. Under the rigorous provisions of the DREAM Act, qualifying undocumented youth would be eligible for a 6 year long conditional path to citizenship that requires completion of a college degree or two years of military service.
