Their Dream is Our Dream
Many people from across the world come to the United States of America for better opportunities. Some have no choice but to come. However, there are many whom enter the country undocumented and thus begins a hard journey for citizenship. In 2001, a piece of proposed legistation known as the Dream Act was presented and reintroduced to the House and Senate in 2009. Under the provisions of the Dream Act, undocumented immigrants would have the opportunity to obtain conditional citizenship in the U.S. and eventually become an American citizen at the end of the process by completing two years of college or two years in the military.
On January 1st, 2010, four students started their powerful journey from Miami, FL to Washington, DC in support of the Dream Act and human rights. Known as the Trail of Dreams, these four students will face hardships beyond imaginable.
