Congressional Co-Sponsors of the DREAM Act

You may want to learn which Senators and Congresspersons have already become co-sponsors of the DREAM Act.  Even if one of your Congressional representatives has already become a co-sponsor, however, we ask you to send our electronic letter today. Any who have already signed on can then brag to you about their support.  The others will be encouraged by your support to join the group below.  Because there is angry opposition to expanding the rights of undocumented youths, the DREAM Act’s supporters are seeking an overwhelmingly large group of co-sponsors.
