Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid announced the Senate WILL VOTE on the “Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act” SATURDAY!

The DREAM Act needs 60 votes tomorrow so it can move forward for debate.  Right now, the votes are VERY close.  Your senator could be the crucial vote. 

Call your senators and tell them to vote YES on the “DREAM Act”! Senators in every state should receive calls, but if your senator is listed below, please ask five friends to call too!

When you call, please use this script:

Hello.  My name is [your name] and I’m from [city, state].  I’m calling to urge Senator [senator’s name] to vote YES on the “DREAM Act” tomorrow.  Vote YES to allow debate on this important bill.

Max Baucus (D–MT)
, Kent Conrad (D–ND), 
 Kay Hagan (D–NC)
, Mary Landrieu (D–LA), 
Joe Manchin (D–WV), 
Claire McCaskill (D–MO), 
Ben Nelson (D–NE), 
 Mark Pryor (D–AR), 
Jon Tester (D–MT)

Robert Bennett (R–UT), Sam Brownback (R–KS),
 Susan Collins (R–ME), Kay Bailey Hutchison (R–TX), 
 Mark Kirk (R–IL),
 George LeMieux (R–FL),
 Richard Lugar (R–IN)
, Lisa Murkowski (R–AL), 
Olympia Snowe (R–ME)
, George Voinovich (R–OH)

In the November elections, the Latino voting block had the opportunity to make a huge difference in the outcomes for many of these senators, show them that powerful voice through these calls.

Those of you that called made a difference in the House vote, now it’s time to really push to make a difference in the Senate vote. If you didn’t get a chance to help for the House vote – here is a second chance!  Please help us make the DREAM a reality in for young people for whom this is an opportunity to achieve their dreams in the country they call “home”.
