Supporters of the Dream Act through the organization DreamActivist.org want to keep the issue of the DREAM Act front and center anywhere it can. So it thought of a unique concept to reach out to the Republican Speaker of the House, John Boehner – send him a Valentine Day card.
The DREAM Acter have not forgotten the lame duck session Senate vote failure and are hoping to reignite interest in the legislation. The Valentine read as follows:
To: Speaker of the House Boehner:
We know that you didn’t support the DREAM Act in 2010, but on this Valentine’s Day, we want to let you know that we love you, we love this country, and we want to get with you some time and make this country great. Together.
We, the immigrant youth movement, are everything you expect America’s next generation to be: hard working, independent, motivated, and committed to making this country great.
Despite the fact that you opposed the DREAM Act in the previous Congress, we won’t stop believin’. In fact, we’re ready to believe that you want a clear, workable solution for this country and this country’s immigrants. So let’s get together… and do some legislative healing.
The Immigrant Youth Movement
