DREAM Act

Flag

America needs the DREAM Act, a common sense bill for students who are aspiring citizens and who came to the United States at a young age. To qualify, students must attend college or serve in the military, and so they improve our nation through values we all share--education and service. According to the Congressional Budget Office, the DREAM Act would strengthen our economy and slash the deficit by $1.4 billion.

One young DREAM-er, Lorella, arrived in the United States at age 10. She graduated summa cum laude from Quinnipac University and hopes to become a lawyer to fight for social justice. Read her story and more like it here.
