Coalition Responds to NY DREAM Act Passage in The Assembly

 The following statement is from Chung-Wha Hong, executive director of the New York Immigration Coalition: 

“New York leaders have done us proud. Kudos to Speaker Silver and the Assembly for passing the New York DREAM Act. And a huge thanks to Chancellor Tisch, the Board of Regents, the State Department of Education, Mayor Bloomberg, CUNY, SUNY, and others for their strong support and championing of this legislation. Now it's the Senate's turn, and we look toward Senators Klein and Skelos and to Governor Cuomo to step up and do what is right: help realize young peoples’ dreams, don't squander this opportunity and pass the New York DREAM Act now.”
