Congress likely to take up DREAM Act soon

November 30, 2010 in Uncategorized

Friends: 

 

   

As you may know, Congress is likely to consider the DREAM Act during before the end of the year and the White House Office of Public Engagement invites you to participate in a community conference call with Secretary of Labor Hilda L. Solis, senior advisor to the President, Valerie Jarrett and White House Director of Intergovernmental Affairs Cecilia Munoz to discuss latest developments.   

  

Please join us for this conference call Tuesday, November 30th at 4:00pm ET to learn more about how the Administration is doing whatever it takes to support Congressional leadership’s efforts to pass the bill and participate in the conversation and Q&A. 

  

The DREAM Act is designed to stop punishing innocent young people for the actions of their parents, by giving them the chance to either obtain legal status by pursuing a higher education, or by serving in the U.S. armed forces for the country they’ve grown up in and love as their own. The DREAM Act has long enjoyed the support of both Democrats and Republicans, and has passed twice out of the Senate Judiciary Committee with bipartisan support. The President has been a strong supporter of the DREAM Act, and was a co-sponsor when he was in the Senate. 
I hope you are able to join!

 

All the best,
