The No. 7 subway line in NYC is one of the places where young immigrants are rallying for the DREAM Act today, according to organizers from Make the Road New York. Sen. Harry Reid is promising a test vote this week on the long-proposed legislation that would set out a legalization path for undocumented students.
The DREAM Act is considered one of the more winnable pieces of immigration reform, but the political prospects are apparently uncertain. Many young voices, though, are mobilizing.
