On September 27, 2017, thirty members of Maine’s business, economic development, labor, and higher education sectors, including MeBIC and many MeBIC partners, sent a letter to Maine’s Congressional delegation urging them to support the Dream Act of 2017 (S. 1615, H.R. 3440). The Dream Act would provide a path to permanent status for young adults who came to the U.S. while still children, who will soon become undocumented following the Administration’s decision to rescind the DACA program effective March 5, 2018.
MeBIC helped spearhead this effort. Learn more about the urgent need for Congress to pass the Dream Act or another durable solution for those with DACA, here.
