Points You Can Make About the DREAM Act
The DREAM Act is bipartisan legislation that gives eligible young people who were brought to the US as children the opportunity to resolve their immigration status and work towards citizenship.
The DREAM Act is supported by 70 percent of likely voters and by leaders in education, the military, business and religious orders.
A national poll of 1,008 adults, conducted by Opinion Research Corporation for First Focus in June 2010, shows that support cuts across regional and party lines with 70 percent overall support.
University presidents and educational associations, as well as military recruiters, business and religious leaders have called on Congress to pass the DREAM Act.
The DREAM Act is a great return on money we have already invested and will prepare the country for the global economy.
The students who would benefit under the DREAM Act have been raised and educated in the US State and local taxpayers have already invested in the education of these children in elementary and secondary school. America deserves a return on their investment.
Leading businesses such as Microsoft have endorsed the DREAM Act because they recognize that our broken immigration system is draining our economy of the talent and resources needed to compete in the global economy.
Passage of the DREAM Act will increases revenues in our communities.

My Father's Family came from Russia and Latvia.
My Grandfather Nathan, traveled all the way from Russia by himself as a teenager. He had a Brother, who already lived in Connecticut.
My Grandmother Sarah; came with her Father, Mother and Sisters from Latvia. Her Father was an Orthodox Rabbi.
I know they arrived in America before 1881; because my Grandmother Sarah and Nathan were married and their oldest child Florence, my Father's Sister, was born during one of the great blizzards, 1881 or 1888.

My Father was born August 4th 1893. On Grand Street; NYC, (by the Brooklyn Bridge); Manhattan's Lower East Side.
They moved to Bayonne New Jersey, where Sarah's relatives lived when he was 7 yrs old.
He grew up to be a Bayonne Fireman and Bar owner and knew everyone in New York City.
My Father and his Brother Harry, were both in the Navy during WWI.
My Father Sam Atkins Jazz AgeMy Mother's Parent's arrived in America around 1905, from Ireland.
My Grandfather Michael was from the County Clare. He worked on the Central Railroad; (in Jersey City), 100 years ago. Unloading box cars with a big hook. He and his fellow workers, sweltered in the summer and froze in the winter!

I think Mike's older Sister was already here when he arrived. She did live nearby.
My Grandmother Bridget was from County Offaly. She always told my Mother that we were descended from the Kings and Queens of Tara Hall. Bridget's Brother, Tim was in the Army in WWI.
My Mother was born on Montgomery Street; in Jersey City (Hudson County) New Jersey in 1909, she was the oldest of 8 children.
She started working; running errands for dressmakers, going all the way to New York City. As young as, seven years old. She had to give her pay to her Mother but could keep her tips.
Before that; from around age five, my Mother was expected to run household errands, like go to the stores and carry as much as five pounds worth of sugar, flour or other groceries home.
Every time I asked for a new pair of shoes; etc, she told me the story of how her Teacher/Nun, gave her a new pair of (ugly) brown shoes and she didn't like the color. But her father said they were good, strong shoes, and made her wear them anyway.
Or about the dress she made from a bathing suit. She had the picture.
Or if I didn't like some food she served, it was about how her Mother cooked goose every Christmas and she hated goose.
