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.
If Congress fails to act this year, another 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 immigrants students who have demonstrated a commitment to hard work and a strong desire to contributing members of our society.
We, the undersigned, call on the Congress to enact the DREAM Act in 2009.
