Resolution in Support of a California Dream Act

Resolution Number 11-04.26

WHEREAS, children should not be punished for the actions of their parents especially on matters where the children do not have a choice; and

WHEREAS, children of undocumented immigrants who grew up in California regard California as the only home they know where they have lived and been integrated into American culture and where many have become top students in California high schools and been later admitted to California colleges and universities, and

WHEREAS, it is of benefit to California to have these students on whom the state already has invested by providing a high school education remain in California for their higher education so they can become productive taxpaying citizens of our state, so

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED, that the California Democratic Party supports access for these children to our colleges and universities and to the tuition and scholarship opportunities available to other California students; and

THEREFORE BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED, that the California Democratic Party transmit this support to all Democratic Members of the California Legislative Delegation.
