My name is Maurice "Mo" Goldman and I believe that our country needs a DREAM Act. I don't just say this because I'm an immigration attorney, I say it as a humanitarian. It is a mission of mine to see the DREAM Act pass in the immediate future. Week after week, I meet DREAMers both in my personal and professional life. This has gone on for over a decade and every time I meet a DREAMer I am impressed with their resolve and motivation. I grew up believing that the United States is the land of opportunity. I have seen numerous success stories from immigrants who have come to this country with close to nothing. Many of them came into this country without lawful status and because of the compassion of past legislation they were given the chance to succeed. I can't imagine what it must be like to grow up in a country that does not value the self worth of a person who is educated here and wants to provide a benefit to the U.S. Does it make any sense to take a group of educated and motivated persons and unceremoniously deport them from our country? Does this make any sense from an economic standpoint? How about a national security standpoint? It makes no sense and the United States needs to stop deporting DREAMers immediately! We need to provide them with the legal ability to study, work and flourish. Politicians have made a big deal about bullying over the past year. Anti-bullying legislation has been introduced by numerous pols who want to stop seeing youths undergo mental anguish and hardship. Perhaps it is time that our political leaders, beginning with our President, look at themselves and realize that they are the bullies in this situation. Deportations are at an all-time high and thousands of otherwise DREAM-eligible persons are being caught in this insidious web. The bottom line is that a DREAM Act is inevitable and without your support it will take longer to get passed. Let's make this happen. Let's bring DREAMers out of the shadows and make us all remember why the United States is the land of opportunity!
