The U.S. House passed the DREAM Act late on December 8, 2010 by a 216-to-198 vote. However, that doesn't mean it has been completely passed. The U.S. Senate needs to hear from you now as soon as possible, as Senate leaders are expected to take up the DREAM Act on December 9, 2010. Just now, however, Senate leaders moved to table consideration on the Senate bill. They'll take up the DREAM Act House version next week.
The purpose of the DREAM Act is to help those individuals who meet certain requirements, have an opportunity to enlist in the military or go to college and have a path to citizenship. This will allow immigrant children an opportunity for a better life; the life those families wanted not just for themselves, but for their kids. Doesn't the military want more recruits? Don't colleges and universities want more minority enrollment? Pass it now so we can become a better country and set the example.
