Turn Lame Duck Into Mighty Duck: Pass the DREAM Act

President Barack Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, House Majority leader Nancy Pelosi and the Congressional Hispanic Caucus leadership all agree on one thing for the lame duck session after Thanksgiving: we need to pass the federal DREAM Act now, so undocumented youth who have grown up in this country can finally serve in the armed forces and contribute to our coffers.

It's not only the right thing to do -- it is an economic benefit for the country and one step towards finding a solution to a broken immigration system.

The House is expected to take a vote this week, followed by the Senate. We have the House votes but lack the required 60 votes in the Senate.

Sign the email petition to wavering Democrats and Republicans, and make sure to get those calls in.

Please vote yes on the dream act."
