WHAT IS THE DREAM ACT?
And Why Is Your Support Important?

The DREAM (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) Act is for students whose futures are restricted by current immigration laws. The DREAM Act allows undocumented students to go to college and become successful US citizens. Without the DREAM Act, the US will be tossing away future doctors and lawyers, current honor students and valedictorians.

Many DREAM students came to the US at an early age and consider the US their home yet because of some immigration laws, they find themselves deprived of higher education, deprived of a future, and deprived of the opportunity to dream.
