Frank Sharry Op-Ed in The Hill: ‘The Senate should approve the DREAM Act now’


My take on why the Senate should approve the DREAM Act now, up at The Hill’s blog:

Passing the DREAM Act should be a no-brainer. It’s a Mom-and-apple-pie measure that enables high-achieving young immigrants to go to college, join our military and earn citizenship. 

It enjoys bipartisan support, and is backed by leaders in education, the military, and business, as well as by religious communities such as the Evangelical movement, the Jewish community and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.

So, why is the measure controversial?
