Governor Gregoire Meets with Undocumented Students on DREAM Act

On March 4, 2010, Governor Christine Gregoire met with five undocumented students and founding members of the recently launched Washington DREAM Act Coalition (WDAC). During the meeting, the students thanked her for her recent support on behalf of Alonso Chehade, a DREAM Act candidate who has been fighting to prevent deportation since last March. The students also shared their own stories and struggles that they face due to a broken immigration system. The Governor was also informed of the current efforts of undocumented students all across the state who are advocating for the DREAM Act, which is legislation that would provide undocumented students with a path to citizenship.
