Portland City Council Calls for Passage of the DREAM Act

I just found out from a tweet by Mayor Sam Adams of Portland that the City Council of Portland in Oregon adopted a resolution for the DREAM Act today. The resolution is here.

Papers the Movie, which is based in Portland, Oregon, deserves credit for making this possible. It was after seeing the great documentary constituting the struggles, dreams and aspirations of five undocumented students that the City Commissioner decided to draft and present a resolution to the City Council.

The City of Portland now joins Philadelphia, Oakland, Santa Ana, City of East Chicago in Indiana, Chicago, Los Angeles and 8 more cities in Los Angeles County in proclaiming support for the federal DREAM Act.
