President Obama has laid out a plan to fix America's broken immigration system so that it reflects how we define ourselves as Americans -- a nation of laws but also a nation of immigrants, and above all a land of opportunity.

President Obama has made clear that we've got to reform the system so that we stop punishing innocent young people for the actions of their parents.

We need to pass the DREAM Act and give these young people a chance to earn an education or serve in the military so they can contribute to the country where they've grown up -- the place they know as home.

For years, politicians in Washington have been unable or unwilling to put politics aside and act to fix a system that fails these young people, limits our economic competitiveness, and violates our unique heritage as a country. This change has to be driven by people like us.

Add your voice now: Stand with the President and thousands of people around the country to support the DREAM Act and work to fix our broken immigration system.

I support the President's plan to fix America's broken immigration system so that it reflects how we define ourselves as Americans -- a nation of laws but also a nation of immigrants, and above all a land of opportunity.

It's time to reform the system, so we stop punishing innocent young people for the actions of their parents and starting giving them a chance to contribute to the country they know as home.
