Tell your Senators to support the DREAM Act

From the Restore Fairness blog-
In a historic bipartisan vote, the U.S House of Representatives passed the DREAM Act on December 8th, bringing the hopes of thousands of young people that have built their lives in America, one step closer to being realized. Soon the Senate will bring the House-approved version of the bill to the floor for a vote, and we need you to make sure that your Senators will vote to make the DREAM Act a reality.
If passed, legislation would provide a clear legal pathway for immigrant youth, who have been raised in the United States and who will pursue higher education or serve the United States Armed Forces, to become U.S. citizens and live the American dream.
We need to flood the Senate with phone calls and ensure that we get the 60 votes needed to pass the DREAM Act.
1. Dial the switchboard 1-866-587-3023 2.
2. Ask the operator for a Senator from the target list
3. When the receptionist picks up leave a message urging the Senator to vote yes on the DREAM Act.
Follow up your phone call with a letter to your Senators telling them why they need to get behind the DREAM Act. Their vote could make the difference between granting or breaking the dreams of thousands. Take action now.
For the first time in history we were able to pass the DREAM Act in the House. Let’s not stop now.
