Dream Act

Jewish clergy stage a sit-in in Rep. Lance's office

This week, I reflected deeply on these verses and this portion’s emphasis on establishing a just society. I participated in a rally at Congressman Leonard Lance’s Westfield office to support the passage of the Dream Act.. DREAMers are people who were brought to the United States as children and until the Delayed Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA was established 6 years ago, they were not able to work, go to college or get driver’s licenses. This policy helped them pursue their dreams and contribute to our society. As we know, DACA is set to expire on March 5. This means that these DREAMers may be deported.
