Our petition just reached 5,500 signatures! But the fight to pass the DREAM Act in the Senate continues. Your sustained pressure on both Republican and Democratic leaders in Congress will be critical to ensuring we pass this. Just yesterday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was feeling the heat from the left. More than 60 young people shut down her news conference on DACA chanting pro-immigration slogans: “All of us or none of us” and “We are not a bargaining chip.” Pelosi had organized the press event to urge the passage of the DREAM Act. But the group of undocumented youth who organized the protest called on the House Minority Leader to focus on a comprehensive approach to immigration reform, without giving concessions to Republicans. Yesterday’s protest is a good reminder that we must continue to urge lawmakers on both sides to secure the passage of the DREAM Act now! Share this update and ask your friends to join the campaign to protect our dreamers.
