A Quinnipiac Poll out this week shows that 77 percent of U.S. voters want undocumented young people to be allowed to stay in the country and apply for citizenship. Congress, however, is getting ready to recess for the year, and members still haven’t acted on the Dream Act, a bipartisan bill that would provide undocumented young people with a path to U.S. citizenship.
Teachers in Connecticut support the Dream Act that is crucial for many of their present and former students. Every day that Congress doesn’t act, more than 100 Dreamers lose their legal status and work permit, and the ability to thrive and contribute to our communities.
Connecticut’s U.S. Representatives and Senators all stand in support of the Dream Act.
Please call them and thank them for their support, and ask them to do what they can to allow these young people peace of mind this holiday season.
