Help Get the Dream Act Passed

Please help support the Dream Act and go here for a list of Senators who need some prodding to do the right thing and how to contact them as well as a sample script.

For those who don't know what this act is all about, it offers students an opportunity to achieve citizenship by serving in the military. As posted on the website Dream Act Info:
"The purpose of the Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act, also called the DREAM Act, is to help those individuals who meet certain requirements, have an opportunity to enlist in the military or go to college and have a path to citizenship which they otherwise would not have without this legislation. Supporters of the DREAM Act believe it is vital not only to the people who would benefit from it, but also the United States as a whole. It would give an opportunity to undocumented immigrant students who have been living in the U.S. since they were young, a chance to contribute back to the country that has given so much to them and a chance to utilize their hard earned education and talents."
Foreign nationals already serve in our military. This bill gives them recognition that we value their service and will reward their sacrifice - something this country has not done well for those already citizens, much less anyone else.

Thanks for stopping by. Come back soon.
