10. The Dream Act

The Dream Act...

It's so very important.

Please read up on it if you haven't. Also, read about my friend, Jose. He was the Valedictorian of my high school graduating class and is a prime example of why we need the Dream Act.

Jose Manuel Godinez-Samperio was brought to the United States from Mexico by his parents when he was nine years old. Sixteen years later, he had graduated from his Florida high school as class valedictorian, become an Eagle Scout, completed college and law school, and passed the state bar exam.

But one big accomplishment eluded him: citizenship. Godinez-Samperio is in the country illegally, which could keep him from achieving another part of his American dream: becoming a lawyer.
