The Dream Act would allow young people who were brought to this country as children, graduated from high school and stayed out of trouble, to earn a path to citizenship through military service or by going to college. I strongly support this legislation.  I was proud to vote for the Texas DREAM Act, I have been proud to know and employ DREAMers, and I look forward to doing whatever I can to support the DREAM Act in the future. 

Diversity is our strength. We must continue to create legal pathways to citizenship for people willing to work hard, give back to their community and help write the next chapter of the American story.
