202-225-4695: “Please champion the DREAM Act as a stand-alone bill.”

After the Facebook group to get Loretta to sponsor the DREAM Act had its spectacular success, it morphed into a new page representing the next step of the campaign:

Senator Dianne Feinstein: Please champion the DREAM Act as a Stand-Alone Bill!

which sent out this urgent message this morning:

Hello everyone,

I hope you can all make it to the events happening today in front of Senator Feinstein’s offices in LA and San Francisco. http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=124753964230681&ref=ts

Yessica Ramirez, the DREAM Act student about to be deported will attend the action is San Francisco. Please visit and join the following FB page for more information on her case: http://tiny.cc/tr4fd

It’s very important to also call and make your voices heard.

Call Senator Dianne Feinstein- DC: 202.224.3841, LA: 310.914.7300 & SF: 415.393.0707

“I am calling to urge Sen. Feinstein to champion the DREAM Act, move it out of committee and help pass DREAM as a stand-alone bill immediately. I am also asking her to not deport DREAM Act student Yessica Ramirez and to call DHS urging them to grant deferred action to Yessica. We can’t allow this to keep happening, that’s why we need the DREAM Act as a stand-alone NOW!”

Also, please call Congressman Berman – DC 202.225.4695 & 818.994.7200

“I’m calling to urge Congressman Berman to champion the DREAM Act. As an ally he has been supportive of immigrant youth and we are thankful, but co-sponsorship is not enough. We need champions and Congressman Berman can do the right thing and help pass the DREAM Act as a stand-alone bill immediately.”

Thanks everyone and please forward this to all your contacts.

The DREAM Act, in case any of you have forgotten or are confused or never knew…

(wiki) The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act (The “DREAM Act”) is a piece of proposed federal legislation in the United States that was introduced in the United States Senate, and the United States House of Representatives on March 26, 2009. This bill would provide certain illegal alien students who graduate from US high schools, who are of good moral character, arrived in the U.S. as minors, and have been in the country continuously for at least five years prior to the bill’s enactment, the opportunity to earn conditional permanent residency. The alien students would obtain temporary residency for a six year period. Within the six year period, a qualified student must have “acquired a degree from an institution of higher education in the United States or [have] completed at least 2 years, in good standing, in a program for a bachelor’s degree or higher degree in the United States,” or have “served in the uniformed services for at least 2 years and, if discharged, [have] received an honorable discharge.”
