DREAM Act: Once Step Closer

This episode examines the process, the pitfalls and the politics of President Obama’s unprecedented order that brought hope to hundreds of thousands of young people – brought to this country as children, raised as Americans, but barred, until now, from legal status, and how it falls far short of the hard-fought, but defeated, “Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act” – which failed in Congress.
Interviews include a Rutgers honors student, Marisol Conde-Hernandez – brought to this country at 18 months, who risked her freedom, before the order, by coming out publicly as undocumented;Herb London of the Hudson and Manhattan Institutes and Lori Nessel of the Seton Hall Law School Center for Social Justice.
