    Calling DREAM Student Leaders! -DREAM SUMMER 2012 Internship Opportunity

    Isn' this against any law?

    Calling DREAM Student Leaders!
    DREAM SUMMER 2012 Internship Opportunity
    This past year undocumented students and allies have shown the nation their great leadership and organizing potential. With limited resources our dream movement was able to build a grassroots campaign that promoted a human face for the immigration story. Our organizing this past year led to countless direct actions and civil disobedience, publicly coming out as “undocumented and unafraid”, challenged President Obama’s harsh and inhumane deportation policies, while successfully passing pro immigrant policies in various states. As our movement grew, we also developed the leadership of immigrant youth all over the nation. In order to strengthen and continue developing our movement’s leadership, the UCLA Labor Center and the United We Dream Network are proud to continue Dream Summer; a nationalinternship program for Dream Act student leaders . We encourage you to apply!
    What is Dream Summer?
    Dream Summer is a 10-week full-time internship program that will place DREAM Act student leaders with social justice, labor and Queer/LGBTQ organizations.
    Each participantwill receive a $5,000 scholarship to support her or his educational goals. Scholarships will be distributed at the END of the Internship.

    Yes they are, All the MORE reason for us to become More relentless and Bold....They are annoying because they are trying to get rights they are NOT entitled to...I wouldn't mind being annoying in the efforts of Gaining back the USA and making sure Laws are Enforced nationwide on a Mandatory basis.

    They get by with so much because they are Loud and obnoxious using every medium available...We have to get better than them at their own game!

    Wouldn't it be nice if we had more Americans fighting them with the same intensity.

    Expressing MY GRATITUDE to her for what I've been able to achieve!
    A promise from myself to Pledge Allegiance to America..Even though I as an Illegal Alien must pay for all this GREAT COUNTRY has given me!
