Last Wednesday, Congress took an important step by passing the DREAM Act out of the House of Representatives. This legislation would legalize the immigration status of young people who were brought to the U.S. as children and provides them with a fair path towards citizenship. Many of us know and work with undocumented immigrant students who grew up in this country and have overcome incredible adversity to pursue higher education.

The passage of this act will not only give our students the opportunity to fulfill their aspirations, but it would also bring us closer to the goal of Comprehensive Immigration Reform.

Join thousands of supporters in urging the Senate to pass the DREAM Act!

Senator Murray (866.481.9186) and Senator Cantwell (888.648.7328) deserve our thanks for strongly supporting DREAM Act. However, these two key Republican Senators need to hear from us NOW:
Sen. Bob Bennett (Utah) – 801.524.5933
Sen. Lisa Murkowski (Alaska) – 907.271.3735
Simply say, “SENATOR ________, please VOTE YES FOR THE DREAM ACT.” The best time to reach a staff member is Monday-Friday 9am-5pm. If you get voicemail, please leave a message.

In Solidarity,
