President Obama Says No Is Not An Option On The Dream Act

President Obama delivered remarks at a Cinco de Mayo reception in the Rose Garden yesterday, May 3rd. During his speech he spoke about support for the Dream Act. “A lot of you remember, over a year ago, we brought the DREAM Act to a vote in Congress, thanks to the hard work of many of you. And it passed the House and a majority of votes in the Senate. Unfortunately, we had some on the other side of the aisle that got together and blocked it. But we didn’t come this far just to let partisan politics stand in our way,” President Obama said. “So we’re going to keep fighting for this common-sense reform. Not just because hundreds of thousands of talented young students depend on it, but because ultimately America depends on it. “No” is not an option. I want to sign the DREAM Act into law. I’ve got the pens all ready. I’m willing to work with anybody who is serious to get this done, and to achieve bipartisan, comprehensive immigration reform that solves this challenge once and for all,” Mr. Obama said to polite applause.
