Hunger strikers press Schumer on DREAM Act, immigration reform

June

Sen. Chuck Schumer had a conversation with protesters in his New York office who are calling for immigration reform, specifically the DREAM Act, reports The Note. A video records hand gestures more than conversation, but clearly there’s frustration over the delayed promises to introduce legislation.

Schumer, who has released a framework for reform, has been the focus of recent protests at his offices around the area, including Peekskill. Hunger strikers, after a 10-day protest, staged a “die-in” in Manhattan.
