DREAM Act Reintroduced!

For more information on the DREAM Act and the individuals this act will affect, click here.


Dear DREAM Advocate,

It is with great delight that we inform you that the DREAM Act has been re-introduced in the US House & Senate!

However, this is only the beginning of something amazing! We still need to remain focused on our goal - MAKING the DREAM Act a REALITY. Now more than ever, our congress members need to hear our youth's desire to become educated and productive citizens.

While you take action, please keep in mind that Numbers USA knows that the DREAM Act has been introduced and are asking their membership to call in OPPOSITION.

DREAM Advocate, this is our time to join forces and SUCCEED for the sake of our youth and the betterment of our nation.

Yours truly,

United We DREAM,
Texas DREAM Act Coalition, &
University Leadership Initiative

Message from the National Immigration Law Center

1. Between today and April 3rd - Contact your Members of Congress (your Representative and BOTH Senators) and ask them to co-sponsor the DREAM Act.

2. Between April 4-19, 2009 - Members of Congress will be back in their states and districts . This is a perfect opportunity to meet with your Representatives and ask them to co-sponsor the bill. Make arrangements to meet with your representatives and if you have an event planned, invite the Representatives to attend.

3. Email your Representative - an email will automatically be sent to your Representatives asking him/her to co-sponsor the DREAM Act.

4. Sign the petition. Our goal is to have 65,000 people sign the petition - representing the number of students who graduate each year from high school who would benefit from the DREAM Act.

Lastly and most importantly, in order to pass the DREAM Act, we will need 60 votes in the Senate and 218 in the House!

Like you, we are eager to pass the DREAM Act and cannot wait to celebrate our victory. Please contact us if you have any questions or comments.
