LIVE VIDEO STREAM: Student youth group speak out in support of DREAMAct

Saturday, December 04, 2010
Time: 11:31 AM

Today, the youth led immigrant rights group, CT Students for a DREAM, will be hosting an important event at Western Connecticut State University in support of the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act.

Press Release:
Documented and undocumented students from WCSU, ECSU, CCSU, UCONN, Trinity College, Yale University, Quinnipiac University, Naugatuck Valley Community College, Sacred Heart, Norwalk Community College, and Connecticut public high schools will convene in support of this pivotal piece of legislation (DREAM Act), a bipartisan bill that would acknowledge the clear fact that these individuals, who were brought by their parents to the United States at a young age, are indeed Americans and would provide them with an earned pathway to citizenship.

During the rally, undocumented students will share their stories of hardship, struggle and triumph; stories about growing up in the country they call home but where current immigration law undermines their sense of identity, their talents, and their aspirations, and disregards the vital contributions they make to their communities; stories that shed light on an injustice and stories that highlight how they are denied the right to “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Through this event, we will show that DREAMers are indistinguishable from their fellow Americans; honest, hard working individuals who want to realize their full potential and continue to give back to their communities.

The DREAMAct is scheduled for debate and possible vote next week.

As a strong advocate for immigrant rights in Danbury, I'll be on hand to show my support for this important cause and will providing a live video stream of this event starting at 1PM.

UPDATE: Here's the re-broadcast of the DreamAct presentation. I will have a follow-up post with interviews with sponsors of the event later.

On September 26, 2007, ten plaintiffs filed suit in response to an arrest of aday laborers at a public park in Danbury, Connecticut. Plaintiffs amended their complaint on November 26, 2007.

The amended complaint states that plaintiffs sought to remedy the continued discriminatory and unauthorized enforcement of federal immigration laws against the Latino residents of the City of Danbury by Danbury's mayor and its police department.

Plaintiffs allege that the arrests violated their Fourth Amendment rights and the Connecticut Constitution because defendants conducted the arrests without valid warrants, in the absence of exigent circumstances, and without probable cause to believe that plaintiffs were engaged in unlawful activity. In addition, plaintiffs allege that defendants improperly stopped, detained, investigated, searched and arrested plaintiffs. Plaintiffs also allege that defendants violated their Fourteenth Amendment rights when they intentionally targeted plaintiffs, and arrested and detained them on the basis of their race, ethnicity and perceived national origin. Plaintiffs raise First Amendment, Due Process and tort claims.

Plaintiffs request declaratory relief, damages and attorneys fees.
