Arizona State Students Go Hungry for the Dream Act

Students at Arizona State University rallied Tuesday to bring attention to the pending Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, also known as the DREAM Act. The legislation will permit undocumented students to continue studying in the U.S. and gain legal status.

The students demonstrated in front of the Memorial Union building of ASU’s Tempe Campus. They used chants and signs to push legislators to vote in favor of the DREAM act and to encourage more students to get involved in advocating for their peers. “We have an entire generation of students who were brought here (to the U.S) without a choice,” Debbie Robles, one of the participating students, told The Huffington Post.

Some students also announced that they will be going on hunger strikes, a tactic that has already been deployed in other states. A group of students supporting the DREAM act have been on a hunger strike that has lasted three weeks.

    Illegal or not the United States needs a more educated population.
    Members of Congress need to pass this act before they go home for Xmas break. But with a self serving Congress that seems to only focus on the next election it is a “toss up” if the act will pass.
