WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) released the following statement after the Senate’s failure to invoke cloture on the DREAM Act, which would require children who came to the United States before the age of 16, and who have lived here at least five years, to serve in the military or get a college education in order to gain legal status:

“Our nation is home to many upstanding and law-abiding young immigrants, many of whom who had no choice in being brought to the United States and now want nothing more than the chance to contribute to this country as members of our military or civilian workforce,” Senator Coons said. “The DREAM Act embraces those who have lived in our country for a number of years and wish to continue contributing to our nation’s economy and security by providing a path to tax-paying legal status through education, financial responsibility, and military service. I’m disheartened that the Senate today turned its back on a group of young immigrants who wish for nothing more than a shot at the American Dream.”
