Support the D.R.E.A.M. Act--S. 774 and H.R. 1275

Honorable Members of Congress, We are writing to ask for your support in passing the DREAM Act. Under the current law, 50,000 to 65,000 students who are children of undocumented immigrants graduate from American high schools each year. Many of these students have been in the United States for more than five years, but are nonetheless prevented from completing their education or legally working in this country because they were originally brought here by parents lacking immigration status. Most of these students came to America as children, having no role in the decision to enter the United States, and many do not even know they are here illegally. We should not group these students together with the adults who knowingly crossed our borders illegally. The better policy is to view them as the valuable resource they are for our nationâ
