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.

1-866-587-3023 or 1-202-224-3121
Ask for your both of your senators. 
Tell them that as their constituent, you want them to act on the DREAM Act.

if a bank robbery breaks into a bank with a baby in the back, should the baby go to jail and punished? no. It is Same thing with these students. THEY DIDN"T CHOOSE TO BE ILLEGAL IMMIGRANT. Republicans are just scared of brown people and minorities. These students came to US when they were babies, probably at the age when they didn't even know what an illegal immigrant means. These students had been invested with US eduacation and are ready to serve the country. Why throw away the precious and well-eduacated human source? It's ridiculous how the economic depression made people to be so twisted and selfish. Wake up people.

Dont forget that this nation was stolen. Dont be so arrogant as to call it yours. You seem to be jealous that the tied of color is rising, well jealousy wont stop the tied! More education equals more freedom and that's why those who oppose the DREAM ACT are crying about giving people freedom.

I am a brown person and I do not approve of the dream act. There are many people waiting in line for years and these people want to get instant green cards. SHAME on them and on the people that support them including the religious leaders. Harry Reid needs to rethink his commitment to the American people. People call these kids well educated STOCK. They have not yet had a college education, most of them atleast. So stop supporting wrong and use some common sense. This act will only help more people to break the law and is a slap on the face of people who follow the law.
