Students and educators flood Congress for a clean DREAM Act

With three days left in the Congressional calendar before the December 22nd deadline to pass a Continuing Resolution (CR) that avoids a government shutdown, hundreds of students and teachers from across the nation joined undocumented youth and allies today, flooding Congressional offices to stress the urgency of attaching a clean DREAM Act to the CR. Led by the National Korean American Service & Education Consortium (NAKASEC) and affiliates HANA Center and the Korean Resource Center (KRC), advocates demonstrated to our nation’s leaders that our youth generate significant social and economic value and are truly the future of this country. Partnering organizations included United We Dream, CASA, the Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA), the New York Immigration Coalition (NYIC), and Asian Americans Advancing Justice.
