"Imagine being brought into Sonoma County as an undocumented child. Imagine going from kindergarten through your senior year of high school being a star student and graduating at the very top of your class.

Even if you do manage to work your way through college, you still have no Social Security number and no way to obtain a legal job. This child we are writing about actually exits, which is one very good reason why we need to pass the Dream Act...."
