Laurene Powell Jobs helps launch 'Dream is Now' website


Laurene Powell Jobs, the widow of the late Steve Jobs, and filmmaker Davis Guggenheim (“Waiting for Superman” and “An Inconvenient Truth” ) have launched "The Dream is Now Website" (http://www.thedreamisnow.org). It's a site dedicated to helping undocumented youth earn their citizenship.

Here's part of the site's mission statement: "There are an estimated one to two million undocumented young people living in America who were brought here as children. These young people have grown up here, attended our schools and learned to speak English just like their classmates. The U.S. is the only country they've ever known.

"Current law provides no path for them to remain in the country lawfully. There is no line in which to wait or application for legal status to complete, no matter how exemplary their behavior, how young they were when they arrived in the U.S. and no matter how valuable their potential contributions to our country.

"Both the President and Congress have signaled that immigration reform will be a top priority in 2013.  The DREAM Act, which would give undocumented young people raised in the U.S. the chance to earn a path to citizenship by going to college or defending America in the armed forces, is one essential piece of this legislative effort.

"While the President has suspended deportations and authorized work permits for qualified undocumented youth through an executive action, these are only temporary fixes. There is still the need for Congress to change our immigration laws and with momentum building behind immigration reform, DREAM can become a reality."
