Los Angeles Times: “Wake up and pass the DREAM Act”

From the Los Angeles Times on June 26th: Wake up and Pass the DREAM Act.

Some good quotes:

“Leaders of the immigration reform movement, who so far have insisted on pushing for an omnibus package of bills, should heed the young people in their ranks calling for a stand-alone effort to pass the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors legislation, or the DREAM Act.”


“Sacrificing the future of talented students does not serve the greater good; it is time to pass the DREAM Act.”

From the LA Times on June 27th: Immigrant Students Face Deportation to Countries They Don’t Remember


“Balderas, for example, was placed in “deferred status,” meaning the government won’t remove him unless he gets in trouble. Even so, the young people remain in legal limbo, often unable to land a professional job after earning a degree. And they live with a legal sword of Damocles over their heads, subject to removal at any moment.”
