pass the DREAM Act!

09/18/2010 § 2 Comments

know about the DREAM Act!  i did some work on this bill back in college, over 7 years ago.  its passage is long over due, and the network of righteous and militant undocumented students spearheading this campaign is true inspiration.  after sitting-in at harry reids office and shaming a bunch of pols, it looks like we could get some movement.  this is an alert i wrote for the AARW, mobilizing phone calls into scott browns office:

AARW Action Alert:

Asian American Resource Workshop is working to help support the passage of the DREAM Act by calling Senator Scott Brown today!  All AARW members are encouraged to support this critical movement by making a quick phone call now.

PLEASE CALL SENATOR BROWN TODAY!

Scott Brown’s Office: 1-888-259-8432 /  Let us know you called: http://tinyurl.com/AARWScottBrownDREAMact

The DREAM Act is a federal bill proposing to allow undocumented youth to gain paths to citizenship if they complete at least 2 years of higher education or military service.  The DREAM Act gives hope to youth and young adults who came to this country without control over their immigration status and seek to be responsible, productive members of US society.

After years of dedicated organizing and activism by immigrant youth from across the country, Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid has committed to including the DREAM Act in an upcoming defense appropriation vote.

We are calling Senator Scott Brown to demand a YES vote in this critical bill.  We have been calling his offices daily and need to continue to do so until he commits to voting for the DREAM Act.

Join the movement and support the DREAM Act today!

Instructions:  Dial 1-888-259-8432

Be courteous. Ask your representative and senator to become an official co-sponsor of the DREAM Act legislation

Sample message – “Hi, my name is ______, I am a Massachusetts resident/voter calling in support of the DREAM Act (S.729 / H.R. 1751). The DREAM Act lays the groundwork for immigration reform and allows immigrant youth to make crucial economic contributions to the United States. To not pass the act at a time when this country needs an economic stimulus and a more educated workforce would be a shame. I urge Senator Brown to vote yes on the DREAM Act.”

    I wish to express tahkns to the writer for bailing me out of this type of crisis. After checking throughout the world wide web and obtaining strategies which were not powerful, I was thinking my life was well over. Living without the answers to the difficulties you have fixed all through the report is a crucial case, as well as the kind that would have badly damaged my career if I had not noticed the blog. Your actual capability and kindness in taking care of the whole lot was important. I am not sure what I would have done if I had not come upon such a subject like this. I can also at this time look ahead to my future. Thank you very much for your professional and sensible guide. I won’t be reluctant to suggest your blog post to any individual who should receive support about this matter.
