Immaculate Heart of Mary and San Felipe de Jesus Catholic Churches invited students from the Orange County DREAM Team to offer testimonies on the challenges of reaching their educational and career dreams while being undocumented. The IHM and SFJ communities were enthusiastic about supporting the Dreamers and signed over 500 letters for Gov. Brown supporting the California DREAM Act and President Obama for the National DREAM Act. The DREAM Act is a piece of legislation at the national and state levels that allows youth brought here as children to gain access to all the benefits documented students have and to legally work in the this country so they can follow their dreams. The federal DREAM Act would take care of that in one stroke. Until then, the California Dream Act (parts A &B) would help them get access to private and public financial aide.
