Supporting the Dream Act


Yesterday’s vote to support the Dream Act by the U.S. House of Representatives was a major step in the right direction for our children and our country. Through no fault of their own, these young people are being punished when all they want to do is excel in school and join our Armed Forces to protect our country. We all need to let the U.S. Senate know that they must now deliver this landmark legislation home. As an immigrant myself, I can tell you without a doubt my education and my U.S. citizenship did more to help me escape poverty and contribute to our great country than al other factors combined.
