Durbin Hopes for Passage of DREAM Act

U.S. Senator Dick Durbin is asking Republicans to join him as he pushes for passage of the DREAM Act.

The Illinois Democrat has been trying for 16 years to pass a law to give protection to young people brought into the country illegally as children by their parents.

When Durbin was unable to pass the law, then-President Obama implemented it by executive order, but President Trump is rescinding the DACA program and is telling Congress to fix it.

Durbin says the so-called DREAMers have a lot to give the country and should not be deported.
