Thank 13 Senators for Reintroducing the DREAM Act
A bipartisan group of thirteen Senators officially introduced the DREAM Act of 2005 (S. 2075). Introduction of the DREAM Act in the Senate is the first of many steps toward creating a path to higher education and citizenship for immigrant students.
To help the many students and families facing the same fate as Marie and her parents, Congress needs to pass the DREAM Act and comprehensive immigration reform.
Senators McCain (R-AZ) and Kennedy (D-MA) have introduced a comprehensive immigration reform bill that would create a path to citizenship for both students like Marie and their hardworking parents. Other immigration reform bills will probably be introduced in the coming months, but the bill that Marie became a spokesperson for is the DREAM Act -- a bipartisan bill introduced by Senators Hatch (R-UT) and Durbin (D-IL) in the last Congress that would provide a path to citizenship and higher education for immigrant students who came to the U.S. before they were 16, lived in this country for at least five years, and graduated from a U.S. high school.
Reintroducing the DREAM Act is a great way to honor Marie's courage and help thousands of other Maries.
