Action Opportunity: DREAM Act

December 2, 2010

We write you today with an important opportunity to stand for welcome. The Senate could consider the first of several votes on the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, also known as the DREAM Act, as early as Saturday. Members of Congress will be considering how they will vote this week and they need to hear from constituents like you, Roberta.

In a recent letter, Linda Hartke, President and CEO of LIRS, urged members of Congress to support the DREAM Act:

“America’s greatness has been built on the hard work of generations of newcomers who have cherished education, committed themselves to hard work and excellence, and have returned many fold great benefits to our society and local communities.”

The DREAM Act would create a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrant youth of good moral character who complete two years of higher education or military service. We urge you to raise your voice with Linda’s in support of this longstanding bipartisan bill. Many of you called your legislators in support of the DREAM Act in September, resulting in a record number of calls to Congress in support of fair and humane immigration – please keep up this momentum!

Contact your Representatives by dialing the Capitol Switchboard at (202) 224-3121. Tell your three members of Congress, “I am a constituent and I urge you to vote for the DREAM Act. I support comprehensive immigration reform and treating all migrants fairly and humanely.” Please write us and tell us about your act of welcome!

You can also visit the LIRS Action Center to send letters to your members of Congress in support of the DREAM Act. Let Washington know you Stand for Welcome and support the DREAMs of our immigrant youth.
