Letter of Support for the Dream Act of 2017

July 25, 2017

​ACE and 32 other higher education associations are urging the Senate to approve the bipartisan Dream Act of 2017, which would allow a select group of talented young undocumented immigrants—commonly known as Dreamers—to earn lawful permanent residence and have access to a path toward citizenship. The letter urges Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-NY) to advance this important legislation so that the Senate can quickly pass the Dream Act before the end of the year.
