Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has committed to introducing the DREAM Act as a stand-alone bill during the Lame Duck session, but it won’t be easy. We need YOUR VOICE to urge members of Congress to support and vote for the DREAM Act.Asian Pacific Americans comprise over 1 million of the estimated 12 million undocumented immigrants, many of whom are under the age of 18. The DREAM Act would provide an opportunity for undocumented youth to become eligible for legal status by pursuing higher education and/or military service.

We need bi-partisan support from both Republicans and Democrats who have supported DREAM in the past.
