DREAM Act

From the Immigrants' List;

In the upcoming months there may come a chance for a pro-immigrant piece of legislation. Specifically, this legislation is called the DREAM Act. For those who don’t know what it is, the DREAM Act would give conditional residence to undocumented students. The requirements include:

They must have been in the US for 5 consecutive years
They must have arrived before the age of 16
The must have a high school diploma or GED
They must demonstrate good moral character.
While this Act would only apply to students, it can serve as a powerful springboard for further immigration reform. Many of these students arrived at a very young age and have thus inherited an undocumented status. They need your help in contacting Senators and Representatives.

To send an email to your Representatives go to: http://www.immigrantslist.org/dream

Please do your part in helping these immigrant youth better their futures and this country. Ask the congressmen/women to support the DREAM Act and co-sponsor it as well.
