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.

I am writing to you to express the urgent need to pass the DREAM Act (Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors) in the lameduck period, a move that is supported by President Barack Obama, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, a majority vote of the House and 70 percent of Americans.

The DREAM Act is a bipartisan proposal, which would create a pathway to citizenship for thousands of young students who were brought to the United States years ago as children. These children have grown up in our communities and include honor roll students, star athletes, talented artists, homecoming queens, and aspiring teachers, doctors, and U.S. soldiers.

Even though they were brought to the U.S. years ago as children, they face unique barriers to higher education, are unable to work legally in the U.S., and often live in constant fear of detection by immigration authorities. Our immigration law currently has no mechanism to consider the special equities and circumstances of such students. The DREAM Act would eliminate this flaw.

By enacting the DREAM Act, Congress would legally recognize what is de facto true: these young people belong here. If Congress fails to act this year, another entire class of outstanding, law-abiding high school students will graduate without being able to plan for the future, and some will be removed from their homes to countries they barely know. This tragedy will cause America to lose a vital asset: an educated class of promising immigrant students who have demonstrated a commitment to hard work and a strong desire to be contributing members of our society.

The time is now. Vote for hope, not for fear. Vote for the American dream.
