Senators to Call for Dream Act! NOW!!!

with 3 comments

If you keep trying to call the 888-587-3023 number and no one picks up, below is a direct line to all the targeted members of the U.S. Senate that need to be called ASAP! Make those calls!

From www.latinas.org

THE DREAM ACT
CALL KEY SENATORS TODAY TO HELP PASS THE DREAM ACT

Help identify leaders to contact key Senators and urge them to support the DREAM Act.  Who do you know that will influence these Senators? SPREAD THE WORD and encourage EVERYONE, especially your friends in the states below to take action before 3pm.

Help thousands of immigrant childrens’ dreams become a reality! These hard-working students try their best in school and DREAM for the opportunity to go to college.

The DREAM Act passed the U.S. House of Representatives on December 8, but the highest hurdle is yet to be faced – the U.S. Senate. Send this action alert to your family and friends in the key states listed below asking them to call their Senators and make an impact for 775,000 immigrant youth and young adults!

The DREAM Act would help students who meet the following criteria:

  • came into the country while very young,
  • resided for at least five years in the U.S.,
  • stay out of trouble,
  • earned a high school diploma or GED, and
  • completed at least two years of college or military service.

Under the provisions of the DREAM Act, qualifying undocumented youth would be eligible for a 6 year long conditional path to citizenship.

The following Senators need to hear from their constituencies before Saturday.

Let’s demonstrate broad support for the DREAM Act.
