Statement from Governor Pat Quinn on DREAM Act

CHICAGO – December 17, 2010. Governor Pat Quinn today issued a statement regarding the DREAM Act in the United States Senate.

“As the United States Senate considers the DREAM Act this weekend, I urge everyone in Illinois to call their Senators and express their support for this legislation. The DREAM Act rewards American values: character, education and service to country. This legislation encourages the pursuit of higher education and strengthens our military, while helping young people reach their full potential with a path to citizenship. I commend U.S. Senator Dick Durbin for his sponsorship of this bill, and U.S. Representative Luis Gutierrez for his steadfast and vocal support of this legislation. I stand united with all who have voiced their support for expanding the American Dream, and urge the U.S. Senate to pass the DREAM Act this weekend.”
