01:43 PM EDT
Ed. Note: This live event has concluded.
The White House Office of Public Engagement invites you to an interactive webchat on the DREAM Act with Deputy Assistant to the President and Director of Intergovernmental Affairs Cecilia Munoz on Monday, November 29th, 2010 at 3 p.m. EST on WhiteHouse.gov/live.
The DREAM Act is designed to stop punishing innocent young people for the actions of their parents, by giving them the chance to either obtain legal status by pursuing a higher education, or by serving in the U.S. armed forces for the country they’ve grown up in and love as their own. The DREAM Act has long enjoyed the support of both Democrats and Republicans, and has passed twice out of the Senate Judiciary Committee with bipartisan support. The President has been a strong supporter of the DREAM Act, and was a co-sponsor when he was in the Senate.
Join us in learning more about how the Administration is doing whatever it takes to support Congressional leadership’s efforts to pass the bill and participate in the conversation and Q&A.
