Advocacy Alert - Dream Act of 2017 (Ley del Sueño 2017)
Tuesday, July 25, 2017 by Communications

Thank our local members of Congress for their continued support of the Dream Act of 2017


Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and Dick Durbin (D-IL) introduced the Dream Act of 2017, a bipartisan bill that would provide young people who were brought to the country as children and grew up in the U.S., commonly known as Dreamers, the chance to apply for lawful permanent residence, provided they meet certain requirements.

Please support the Dream Act and call on Congress to pass the bill and to urge the Administration to continue the DACA program until a more permanent solution is enacted. Thank our Cook and Lake County members of Congress who continue to support the DREAM Act:

Sen. Durbin, co-sponsor
Sen. Duckworth
Rep. Rush
Rep. Kelly
Rep. Lipinski
Rep. Gutierrez
Rep. Quigley
Rep. Davis
Rep. Schakowsky
Rep. Schneider
Rep. Krishnamoorthi

Agradecemos a nuestros miembros del Congreso por su continuo apoyo a la Ley del Sueño 2017 (DREAM Act 2017)

Los senadores Lindsey Graham (R-SC) y Dick Durbin (D-IL) introdujeron el DREAM Act de 2017, un proyecto bipartidista que proporcionaría a los jóvenes que fueron traídos a este país cuando fueron niños y crecieron en los Estados Unidos, comúnmente conocidos como Soñadores (Dreamers), la posibilidad de solicitar la residencia legal permanente, siempre y cuando  cumplan ciertos requisitos.

Por favor apoya la Ley de los Soñadores (DREAM Act) y pide al Congreso que apruebe el proyecto de ley, y que presione  a la Administración a continuar con el programa DACA hasta que se promulgue una solución más permanente.
Gracias a los miembros del Congreso de los Condados de Cook y Lake que continúan apoyando la Ley de los Soñadores DREAM Act:

Sen. Durbin, copatrocinador
Senador Duckworth
Rep. Rush
Representante Kelly
Rep. Lipinski
Rep. Gutiérrez
Rep. Quigley
Representante Davis
Representante Schakowsky
