New York DREAMers are Hungry for Change

Hey peeps. Feliz Lunes.

OK, based on what I’m reading/hearing from different sources, the possibility of Comprehensive Immigration Reform (CIR) is probably dead this year in Washington. Very faint pulse.

I’m not happy to write that, but let’s call it like we see it.There are a whole bunch of factors that play into this dismal view; nevertheless, things are looking grim.

So why not pass the DREAM Act as a stand-along bill right now? For me, it is a no-brainer: Pass the DREAM act, bring in thousands of young pro-immigration supporters who can come out of the shadows and fight for the rest of us.

Members of the New York State Youth Leadership Council have been on a hunger strike outside of Senator Chuck Schumer’s office since June 1.

Today is June 7.

They risk their lives, and will continue with the hunger strike until Senator Schumer, (one of the original co-sponsors of the DREAM act) brings the DREAM act forward in the Senate as a stand-alone bill.

I naturally want CIR for all. However, that’s a lot more complicated right now.

So keep the pressure on for the DREAM act as a stand-alone bill. Click here to take action.

And if you’re in New York, please give each and every one of the DREAM act hunger strikers a big hug for me.
