U.S. Senator Dick Durbin and members of the Democratic Caucus gathered on the Senate Floor to push for passage of the Dream Act, which would allow young immigrant students who grew up in this country – – to obtain permanent legal residency and continue on the road to citizenship.
Durbin says movement is needed and soon.
More than 10,000 Dreamers have already lost their DACA status. By early 2018, another one thousand young people will lose that protection each day.
