Rep. Yvette Clarke (D-NY-9) Lists DREAM Act As Priority For 113th Congress

| | Comments ()
I'm going to start publishing lawmaker's statements here on Citizen Orange more regularly. I use SCOUT from the Sunlight Foundation to follow what lawmakers say about the DREAM Act, and am going to start doing so for "immigration" more broadly.

Rep. Yvette Clarke, a Democrat congresswoman from New York's 9th district had this to say about what she thinks priorities should be for the 113th Congress:
It is my hope that we address immigration reform, specifically the enactment of the DREAM Act. This act, which provides legal status and a path to citizenship to undocumented immigrants who arrived in the United States as minors, will benefit every person in our society. This act will allow millions of young Americans to participate in our economy, our system of higher education, and the society more generally.
