Join us on Tuesday, March 6th for the New York DREAM Act Albany day and demand that our state government act! It is now up to the State of NY to provide dignity and recognition for all its promising and deserving young people.
Every year thousands of undocumented youth graduate from New York high schools and face an uncertain future because of their immigration status. For years the federal government has failed our communities by refusing to pass the DREAM Act. This has left undocumented youth in NY without any form of relief. As a state with one of the largest immigrant populations, NY should be at the forefront of progressive immigration policies, pushing back on the tide of national and local anti-immigrant policies.
