From our friends at DREAMActivist.org:
Today, day 20 of the hunger strike, seven Texans, including immigrant youth and their allies, are staging a sit-in in Senator Hutchison’s San Antonio office, urging her to join them in supporting the DREAM Act, legislation based on hard work, education, and service.
“We’ve done everything. For years, we’ve called, we’ve lobbied, we’ve gathered petitions, and we’ve been on hunger strike for over two weeks. This country’s future cannot wait anymore. It’s time to pass the DREAM Act,” Lucina Martinez, DREAM-eligible undocumented student at UTSA.
Right now, all eyes are on Texas and we need your help to make sure we can make an impact.
