Sacramento Demonstration for the Dream Act-Dec 2.

Demonstration at the California Capitol today, Dec.2.2010.

The goal of the demonstration  is to bring to light the thousands of students caught in the horrible, perpetual limbo of being educated, bright and ready to work, but denied the chance to because of their illegal immigration status.

The DREAM Act would give more than 100,000 young immigrants, brought to the United States before the age of 16, a chance to become legal residents if they attend college or join the military. 

Many of us have known or do know Californians that have had to live in hiding. 

The DREAM Act is bipartisan legislation that would provide undocumented young women and men who were brought to the U.S. as young children a pathway to U.S. citizenship.  See Just the Facts: Five Things You Should Know About the DREAM Act or check out NILC’s website at for more information.
