Make New York State DREAM a Reality!
Yet reports indicate that the New York State DREAM Act is at serious risk of being taken out of the budget. This is unacceptable.
We need our state's elected leaders - including Governor Andrew Cuomo, Assembly Speaker Carl Heastie, Senate Leader Dean Skelos - to stand up for New York's nearly 4,000 immigrant youth who graduate every year who can benefit from the NYS DREAM Act.
Right now, dozens of New York DREAMers are mobilizing a hunger strike that starts tonight to defend the DREAM Act. They need your help to keep DREAM in the budget.
