Young people and Members of Congress gathered on Capitol Hill yesterday to tell their personal stories and urge Congress to support the DREAM Act.

Cesar Vargas, Michelle Rodriguez, and Michael Nazario shared why they want to serve our country – their country – by joining the military. Rep. Joe Crowley (D-NY), Rep. Joe Baca (D-CA), Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), and Rep. Raul Grijalva (D-AZ) expressed their firm support for the measure as a bill that advances the American values of opportunity, education, and service.
