NYIC Urges Senators to Vote YES on DREAM Act

From the New York Immigration Coalition:

ON THE PASSAGE OF THE DREAM ACT IN THE HOUSE

(Wednesday December 8th, 2010) Following is a statement from Ms. Chung-Wha Hong, executive director of the New York Immigration Coalition:

"One down, one to go. With the House passage of the DREAM Act, we are one giant step closer to giving young people a chance to achieve their dreams, and leverage their full potential for the benefit of our nation. It is gratifying that the House came to its senses at the eleventh hour.  Kudos to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and the President for moving this forward.  And shame on Reps. Arcuri (D-24),  Higgins (D-27), King (R-3), Lee (R-26), and Owens (D-23) for betraying New York State's proud tradition of honoring the contributions immigrants make to our state and country.  And now,  on to the Senate to bring the DREAM Act across the finish line."
