The U.S. Senate will meet today (Tuesday, Sept. 21) to determine whether or not the DREAM Act gets a vote this congressional session.
With your help, the DREAM has a chance to become a reality, but you need to ACT BEFORE 1:00 P.M. (CENTRAL), TUESDAY, SEPT. 21.
Help us get the important message to Sen. Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and Rep. Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), as well as Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and Sen. Roland Burris (D-Ill.): The 65,000 undocumented students that graduate from high school each year in the U.S. are important and should have an opportunity to fulfill their dreams.
If passed, the DREAM Act would create a way for current, former, and future undocumented high school graduates and GED recipients, who go to college or serve in the military, to become U.S. citizens.
These graduates have potential to become doctors, nurses, soldiers, teachers and entrepreneurs. They can make great contributions to the U.S. economy and society, but they have one huge obstacle holding them back.
Please don’t let today go by without taking these important steps to help:
Call the offices of Rep. Kirk and Sen. McConnell and urge them to support the DREAM Act:
Sen. McConnell: (202) 224-2541
Rep. Kirk: (202) 225-4835
Sen. Durbin: (202) 224-2152
Sen. Burris: (202) 224-2854
