Dear Representative Mike Castle,

The DREAM Act is a bipartisan proposal, which would create a pathway to legalization for thousands of young students who were brought to the United States years ago as children. If Congress fails to act this year, another entire class of outstanding, law-abiding high school students will graduate without being able to plan for the future, and some will be removed from their homes to countries they barely know. This tragedy will cause America to lose a vital asset: an educated class of promising immigrant students who have demonstrated a commitment to hard work and a strong desire to be contributing members of our society. 

The DREAM Act is essential because it finally creates a pathway for undocumented students to legalize their status.  Currently there is no line for such people who were brought to the United States as minors.
The DREAM Act would ensure that if a person meets the following criteria they will then be given a chance to FINALLY “get in line”:
- Entered the US prior to the age of 16;
- At least 5 years of presence in the US prior to Act’s passage;
- Good moral character;
- High school diploma or GED; and
- A college degree or military service.
Everyone deserves a chance at an education regardless of their legal status; join us to learn what you can do to fight for student’s rights!


On my behalf, as a constituent of the State of Delaware, please vote YES! for the passing of the Dream Act in June 2010.
