Today a vote on the DREAM Act is imminent in the U.S. Congress. Thanks to the hard work and continued advocacy by many of you, we are now just a few votes away from securing the bill's passage. One last push to Congress may help to define the fate of hundreds of thousands of our youth.
The DREAM Act opens the door to higher education and military service for young people whose parents brought them to this country as children without proper documentation. This bill will allow hundreds of thousands of youth to fulfill their dreams and contribute their talents to the strengthening of our nation.
