The DREAM Act would provide a pathway to legalization for undocumented youth brought to America as minors who attend college or join the military.
However, the original bill also allowed youth to gain legal status through community service, an option that was replaced to push young people into the military.
Undocumented youth, especially those for whom college attendance is outside their means, should be permitted a peaceful means to serve their adopted country and earn legalization.
Tell your Congressperson to support the DREAM Act with the original community service option.
