The ICIRR Call to Action:
Tomorrow the Senate will be voting on wether they will debate the Defense Appropriations bill which the DREAM Act is being attached to.
The DREAM Act is a bipartisan bill that would provide a path to citizenship for youth who graduate from US high schools, show good moral character, arrived to the US before the age of 16, and complete at least 2 years of college or serve in the armed forces.
Every year, 65,000 students graduate from a U.S. high school without the realistic possibility of following their dreams. These students grew up here and want to contribute to this country, either by attending college and growing the economy or serving in the US military.
Help us make 65,000 calls for the DREAM Act, one for every undocumented student graduating from high school this year!
This evening DREAM Students and allies will gather at Federal Plaza, near the Air Force Recruiting Office.

After the rally at Federal Plaza, participants will march over to Republican Headquarters (205 W. Randolph) to set-up for an overnight vigil until the vote. Please come out and show your support!
