Dream Act Students Dare to Dream

I want to extend a sincere thank you to the young men and women who put together the Dream Act Mock Graduation at the lawn of City Hall yesterday. The Dream Team coalition did a fantastic job in getting the word out and I was honored to have been the keynote speaker.

The Federal Dream Act would provide a pathway to citizenship to many of our brightest minds. Many undocumented students earn top marks in their classes, are in the top percentile within their high schools and many have aspirations to go on to college. They could be doctors, teachers, lawyers, or urban planners, but are in limbo within our immigration system.
I would encourage everyone to sign the petition to pass the DREAM ACT and contact your Members of Congress & U.S Senate today.
