Thank you for taking action on the DREAM Act. The act did not get enough votes to pass in the Senate, but there will be many opportunities to make your voice heard in the future. Please check in with New America Media to see how you can stay involved.
New America Media, the country’s largest association of ethnic news outlets, urges its audiences to join the national call for action on the DREAM Act.
The DREAM Act would provide a chance for hundreds of thousands of eligible undocumented high school graduates to attend college or serve in the U.S. military. Those who do so can eventually apply for legal residency, if the bill passes.
The bill, which stands for the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act, has been debated in Congress for a decade and enjoys bipartisan support. But your legislators need to know that their immigrant and ethnic constituencies want action on this bill.
It’s urgent to act on the DREAM Act now because:
• Unlike most previous attempts, this time the bill is up in Congress as a stand-alone bill. This is a rare opportunity for legislators to vote on the bill’s own merits and not as part of a larger legislative package.
• This might be the last chance for significant action on immigration for the next two years. Let us seize this opportunity.
• The DREAM Act addresses military, economic and educational needs when the country faces major challenges in all of these areas.
Please call Congress today and explain to your representatives why immigrant and ethnic communities expect action on the DREAM Act today.

Ask for your both of your senators.
Tell them that as their constituent, you want them to act on the DREAM Act.
