Senate should join House in passing DREAM Act

Thursday, Dec. 9, 2010

In correspondence with U.S. Senators George V. Voinovich and Sherrod Brown today, the League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Columbus urged their support for the DREAM Act.

The correspondence was sent in response to an action alert issued by the League of Women Voters of the United States. The full text of the letter follows:

On behalf of the League of Women Voters of Metropolitan Columbus and its hundreds of members across central Ohio, I urge you to vote in support of the DREAM Act.

This bipartisan legislation will provide a path to citizenship for young immigrants who complete a college degree or serve in the military, thereby enabling them to be a fully productive part of American society. The DREAM Act opens the door of opportunity while it strengthens our economy and society.

Thank you for your consideration on this issue, and for your service to Ohio.
