Arizona native Raul Alcaraz; Lizbeth Mateo of Los Angeles, CA; Tania Unzueta of Chicago, Il; Mohammad Abdollahi of Ann Arbor, MI; and Yahaira Carrillo of Kansas City, MO, protest at US Sen. John McCain’s office, 5-17-10 in support of the DREAM Act.
Latino voters prefer a DREAM Act that promises citizenship. They’re not so keen on an alternative DREAM Act proposed by Florida Senator Marco Rubio. That’s according to a new poll.
DREAM stands for Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors. Rubio has suggested a DREAM Act tjat would provide undocumented youth temporary legal status, if they go to college or serve in the US military. But it does not guarantee a path to citizenship. Illinois Senator Dick Durbin's version would lead to permanent legal status.
