Iowa has always been a state blessed by those who immigrate from war-torn and far-away lands. These great people have much to offer our state, with only one request in return: the opportunity to work hard and raise their family in a safe, secure environment free from war and oppression.
As Americans we understand and appreciate our freedom. Freedom that is not to be awarded to the few, but to the many who long for, and are willing to work for that which so many that are born here take for granted.
I implore our senators to support a clean DREAM Act, and allow those who know no other country as their home to remain, contribute, and prosper in our great state.
