Cambridge City Council Supports the Dream Act

On August 2, 2010 the Cambridge City Council passed a resolution supporting the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act. A bi-partisan bill in both houses of Congress and supported by 39 US Senators and 124 Representatives, the DREAM Act would enable many students who are undocumented immigrants to earn legal status and continue with their education. The Resolution will be sent to MA Senators Kerry and Brown as well as Representative Capuano, President Obama and DHS Secretary Napolitano.

Representatives from CSfC and many other local partners working on immigration issues testified at the city council meetings. You can see their testimonies by clicking here: Most of the statements are at the following times in the video: 1:02; 1:12; 1:30 and 1:42.

Thank you to the Cambridge City Council for passing this critical resolution and we hope that all members of the MA delegation to the US Senate and House of Representatives will support this important legislation.
