Margaret Cho Wants YOU to Take Action Today for the DREAM Act

Korean American comedian and performance artist Margaret Cho joins NAKASEC, KRC & KRCC to call for the DREAM Act this year. She says, “Immigrant youth have waited far too long for Congress to do the right thing. The DREAM Act is a benefit to us all. No more wasting talent, brains and opportunities. Let’s pass the Dream Act now.”

There was a historic vote in the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday, December 7, 2010! Tomorrow, the U.S. Senate will vote on the DREAM Act.

We can do this! Over the past couple weeks, people across the country logged more than 200,000 calls! We need to continue the pressure! If you’ve already made calls, find the Senators’ Pages on Facebook and leave comments asking them to vote YES on the DREAM Act!
