Before we left for vacation, the Senate failed to pass the DREAM act, devastating many people just before the holidays. To highlight this misery I submitted a piece to Sojourner’s blog, God’s Politics entitled A Christmas DREAM for Students Around the Country . I commented on the lack of Christmas spirit in the hearts of the senators who voted against a piece of legislation that should have easily been passed.
Now, it’s a brand new year, a fresh start, the beginning. Congress reconvenes on Wednesday January 5 with bright ideas and good energy. I urge our congressional members to support legislation that reforms our immigration system effectively and “reunites families, not tear them apart.”
