Despite the exciting success of gaining Congressman G.K. Butterfield as a supporter of the DREAM Act, Senator Kay Hagan continues her opposition to the bill. I address my response to her opposition in the letter being sent to her offices, pasted below.

Senator Kay Hagan,

Over the past year, undocumented youth from across the country have come out of the shadows to show the human face of our broken immigration system. From letters, phone calls, articles, declarations of support, hunger strikes, sit-ins, die-ins, acts of civil disobedience, and numerous lobby visits- you have refused to see these faces. You have shown your priorities, choosing meeting a trick-performing mule over the youth upon whom The Independent Weekly conferred the Citizen Award.

You have repeatedly refused action on tangible steps towards immigration reform, while professing your support for a comprehensive approach to immigration reform that you neither helped to draft nor co-sponsor. Your name appears nowhere in the Schumer-Graham framework introduced early this year. In September, you had another chance to support Comprehensive Immigration Reform when Senator Menendez introduced S. 3932- the CIR Act of 2010. For a proponent of CIR your absence from the list of co-sponsors is telling. Your vote does however appear on S.3721.IS- an emergency funding bill for stricter border enforcement measures, including the deployment of additional drones at the border. Hardly a “comprehensive” approach to immigration reform.

You say that you don’t want a bill that doesn’t address the issues facing our communities, as if the DREAM Act would be an end to the struggle for immigration reform. As if we would stop struggling for our communities. As if we, the youth in this movement, would abandon our older siblings, our parents, and our abuelitos. If you had any understanding of this movement, and the young people leading it, you would know better. Had you any idea that we took part in actions against Arizona’s SB 1070, led know your rights trainings, struggled to re-unify a family broken apart by our immigration system, or had the support of our parents in this struggle- you might sing a different tune.

You had both the time and audacity to sponsor a bill (S.RES.353.ATS) supporting American Education Week, while the time to co-sponsor a natural extension of that bill, the DREAM Act, seems to have escaped you. The opening line of the Presidential Proclamation for that week asserts:

Education is essential to our success as both a people and a Nation. During American Education Week, we rededicate ourselves to providing a complete and competitive education for every student, from cradle through career.

From your own bill:

[E]quipping young people in the United States with both practical skills and broader intellectual abilities, public schools give young people hope for, and access to, a productive future;

The costs of your refusal are not just productive futures and a better United States, your inaction is costing lives. If you are so concerned about the families of these undocumented youth, where is your concern as the same families mourn the suicide of their children who feel they have no future? How many more families must suffer this loss? How many more parents must suffer the remorse of frustrated futures for their children? How many more families must be separated from their children either through deportation or voluntary departure?

As a Senator who owes her seat to communities of color, I would hope that you would recognize the importance of standing by these communities. Despite losing the white vote by 18 points, you still claimed victory in 2008. New immigrants and immigrant youth voters (Latino and Asian alone) represent 120,000 votes in North Carolina- that’s nearly 10 times the margin of victory that separated President Obama from Senator John McCain in 2008.

As a US citizen and one of your voting constituents, I have been proud to stand by my undocumented friends and family in this struggle, a struggle which you have ignored. Yes, members of my family are undocumented, and not all of them will benefit from the passage of the DREAM Act. If you think that DREAMers are going to step out of the shadows and be content to leave their, our, families in them- you are sorely mistaken. While every other governmental and organizational proponent of Comprehensive Immigration Reform has come on board for the passage of the DREAM Act, you stand alone in opposition. You are single-handedly forcing these brave youth back into the shadows. You are single-handedly ensuring more pain for their families. You are single-handedly responsible for pain and suffering in the very communities to whom you owe your position. If you think that the incoming congress will be any more likely to take even a minuscule step to help reform our immigration system in a comprehensive way, you are again sorely mistaken.

To be clear, you are standing in opposition to the President; your party leadership; the Secretaries of Homeland Security, Defense, and Education; the Department of Defense; former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Colin Powell; leaders of faith communities throughout North Carolina; your constituents; and countless others. You are instead standing with groups that willfully distort the truth in order to advance their xenophobic anti-immigrant agenda.

I urge you to carefully consider your position and the impacts of your inaction. North Carolina’s motto is Esse Quam Videri, and I challenge you to be, rather than seem, a friend to immigrant communities. Don’t be mistaken, your continued insistence on Comprehensive Immigration Reform in the face of legislative down-payment on that reform does not make you a friend of immigrant communities. You have a chance to do the right thing, and I strongly urge you to support the DREAM Act.

Sincerely,

Justin Valas

****For Immediate Release****

As DREAM Act Approaches, Detentions Hit Home

Talented, local student ripped away from family as holidays, DREAM Act vote approach

GREENSBORO, NC – Twenty two years ago, a family fled political persecution and threats of violence in their native Guatemala, arriving in the US with their two year old son, hoping to find asylum. After 12 years, their petition for asylum was denied. Ten years later, their son Fredd, now 24 years old, was pulled from his sleep by ICE on the day of his exams at Guilford Technical Community College and placed into removal proceedings.

Fredd Reyes is the most recent in a long summer of DREAM Act-eligible youth facing deportation in the face of pending legislation. Fredd is an accomplished actor, singer, and student. He graduated from Davidson Community College with an associates degree and was continuing his education by studying to be a dental hygienist at Guilford Tech. That is, until ICE interrupted his studies. He is also a talented actor, having performed in many plays and short films, and a singer with an amazing voice. Aside from his videos on YouTube, Fredd had also auditioned for the television program Glee and sings with his mother and sister every Sunday at Our Lady of Grace’s Spanish mass.

Fredd is an impressive young man whose future has been put on hold by a broken immigration system that seeks to remove him from the place he has called home for more than 90% of his life. He is well loved by his friends and community. He is an asset to his community, to North Carolina, and to the United States- to which his friends, family, and co-workers will attest.

The NC DREAM Team is convening a press conference to highlight Fredd’s case through the words of those affected by his detainment. There will also be information shared about the status of the DREAM Act, its importance to North Carolina, and other DREAM Act eligible youth currently detained as a vote on the DREAM Act draws near.

This press conference will take place today, November 24th, 2010 from 3pm to 4pm at the Greensboro Cultural Center (200 N Davie St., Greensboro, NC 27401).

About the DREAM Act:

The DREAM Act, first introduced in 2001 by Senators Orrin Hatch (R-UT) and Richard Durbin (D-IL), would provide a one-time, earned path to permanent residency for undocumented youth who arrived in the US before the age of 16; have maintained continuous presence in the US for the 5 years immediately preceding the passage of the DREAM Act; posses good moral character; have graduated from a US high school; and serve two years either in the uniformed forces or towards the completion of a bachelors degree or higher.

The future of 51,000 lay at the mercy of a senator—a senator who has been unwilling to co-sponsor a piece of legislation, known as the DREAM Act: the only existing legislation that would establish a non-existent (yet necessary) pathway toward legalization for these 51,000 in our state, 2.1 million in our country. Yes, our state and our country because we are American.

            Photo by J.Valas

Behind this political terminology and this number are stories. They are stories that for years were stories of hopelessness, of desperation and confusion. But this is no longer the case. There is a hunger for freedom from these invisible chains that have kept us oppressed for years. And it is manifesting itself in a growing movement.

Of these 51,000 in North Carolina, three young women, armed with valor and determination challenged the status quo. We embarked on a thirteen day hunger strike. Our mission was to give a face to the “illegal alien” and to give our DREAMs a voice.

   Hunger Strike for our DREAMs - June 14, 2021 to June 27, 2021

But more compelling than refusing to eat a single bite was (and is) our unyielding persistence to speak out. We declared ourselves Undocumented and Unafraid. As we starved for our dreams at the corner of Wilmington and Lane, many questioned our intentions and determination. I challenge them to walk a mile in our shoes. From that day forth, the ability to go without nourishment for 13 days and the fuel for our tireless efforts came from that number: 51,000.

Last Saturday night, 51,000 were challenged. Current and former undocumented students from all over North Carolina stood before a crowd in the middle of downtown Greensboro, Guilford County: one of eight North Carolina counties with an adopted 287(g) program.

            Photo by Justin Valas

They expressed feelings of fear and shame, conflict and strength. And over fifty assembled and passers-by witnessed and listened closely as young undocumented people told their stories. They listened to stories of academic accomplishments, leadership and initiative within church youth groups, school, and community organizations. Yet, more captivating were the parts where DREAMers expressed their desire to serve. And their willingness to persevere until we are given that opportunity, by law.

  Photo by J. Valas

We, the undocumented youth of North Carolina, say no more. No more to walking with our heads down because we cannot see a brighter future. We will fight for it! No more to feeling ashamed of who we are, our names, and our lives. We are Undocumented and Unashamed! No more will we feel forced to ask why we should “pay for the sins of our fathers”. If corporations can cross borders for cheap labor, so should people seeking a better life!  

51,000 have been challenged. Now I put the challenge to Senator Hagan- will you champion legislation that will ensure a solid educational foundation and create a more educated workforce for the benefit of all North Carolinians? Or will you instead remain lock-step with the status quo, acknowledging our contributions as ”illegal taxpayers” but refusing to co-sponsor the DREAM Act? It is time for leadership, senator. It is time to live up to our state’s motto - To be, rather than to seem.

On a recent September morning, agents of Immigration Customs Enforcement came knocking on Fredd Reyes’ door. It was 5 AM and Fredd was asleep after a long night of studying for his exam at Guilford Technical Community College that very same day. Fredd was handcuffed by Immigration Customs Enforcement (ICE) and taken from his North Carolina home to North Georgia Detention Center then transferred to the infamous Stewart Detention center in Lumpkin, Georgia. He faces imminent deportation.

Take action now and let’s get him home for Thanksgiving!

1. Call Do Price, Field Officer at Stewart Detention Center, at 229-838-1187 to urge deferral on Fredd’s case. (The voicemail is for a different name, but this is the correct number to call)

Call-in script: “Hi, I am calling to ask that you defer Fredd Reyes’ removal. His A# is 073189270. He is a hard working, talented student, and is an asset to North Carolina and the United States.”

2. Call Senator Kay Hagan (D-NC) at 877-852-9462, and ask her to co-sponsor and support the DREAM Act, a bill that would give youth like Fredd the chance to no longer live in fear and to serve their communities.

3. Sign the online petition: http://www.change.org/petitions/view/locked_up_for_spending_22_years_in_the_us_-_bring_fredd_reyes_home_for_thanksgiving

Below is some additional background on Fredd’s story:

Twenty-two years ago, Fredd’s family fled their native Guatemala in the face of death threats and persecution. Needless to say, they haven’t been back since. In spite of the clear danger they faced back in Guatemala, our broken immigration system denied their bid for asylum in 2000.

Fredd earned his Associates Degree from Davidson County Community College and transferred to Guilford Tech to continue his education.

Fredd DREAMs of utilizing his acting and singing skills to become a professional actor and renowned singer.

Like others who have faced the injustice of our broken immigration system and the Stewart Facility, Fredd has an approved green card awaiting him on the other side of the walls that now deprive him of his freedom. The only thing stopping him from being at home with his family is ICE’s stubborn refusal to open his case.

We’ve reached a critical time for the DREAM Act. Senator Harry Reid from Nevada (who “owes the Latino community big time.”) has vowed to bring the DREAM Act up for a vote during the coming lame-duck session of Congress. In coordination with groups around the country, the NC DREAM Team and our allies have undertaken a week of action in support of the DREAM Act. In fact, within the Triangle, we are on our second week- thanks to our friends and allies at Students United for Immigrant Equality and Duke Students for Humane Borders who culminated their week by ‘Giving up our dreams for the DREAM‘ this past Friday night.

This week we have been calling for Senator Hagan to remember her accountability to ALL of her constituents. In Asheville, DREAMers took to the pavement outside of her office with signs and banners- gaining a lot of support from passers by. Some of her mountain-resident constituents braved the cold to stand for what they saw as an injustice. As taxpayers, documented and undocumented, we deserve to have a our delegates to Washington, DC hear our voices.

Tuesday saw caps and gowns outside of Senator Hagan’s Charlotte office. We held a vigil to restore faith in our Senator. While we have asked for meetings with Senator Hagan since May, we have frequently been told that “the Senator has a very busy schedule. She doesn’t have time to meet with everyone.” I guess she just has time to meet with her “important” constituents…. We also heard from many Republican constituents who not only couldn’t believe that Senator Hagan wasn’t co-sponsoring the DREAM Act, they were equally shocked that Senator Burr was not supportive of the legislation. So, Senator Burr, you can expect a few phone calls coming in as well.

Wednesday saw youth from near her home of Greensboro take to the streets, boldly calling for Senator Hagan to “Let Us Serve!” These brave Yadkinville youth also proclaimed that they are Undocumented and Unafraid. These youth made a personal case for the passers-by and for the Senator: They are educated, talented, committed and wish to be able to serve the country they call home. At the same time, NC DREAM Team’s newest members, Jose and Alicia, attended the Senator’s veterans constituent services meeting to share their perspective with our Senator.

Photo by V. Martinez

Alicia has her nursing degree and wants to be able to serve those in need. Particularly, she wants to be able to put her training as a nurse to serve the men and women of our armed forces. For the most military-friendly state in the nation, how can we deny our troops the medical care that can save their lives? Alicia isn’t alone, there are countless DREAMers around the country who aspire to serve and protect this country through military service. When members of the American Legion learned about what the DREAM Act entailed, we gained even more supporters.

That brings us to today, Veterans Day. Not only will we be presenting the DREAM Act to a local veterans group, we will also be rallying in Raleigh outside of Senator Hagan’s office again. And we won’t be alone. DREAMers are not the only group discriminated against by something that has no bearing on their ability or desire to serve their country and be full, respected members of the community. We are reaching out to our brothers and sisters in the fight for LGBTQ equality to demand our Senator take action to support our communities and a stronger North Carolina. This Veterans Day, we are demanding that Senator Hagan “Let Us Serve”- pass the DREAM Act (requested by the Department of Defense) and repeal the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy (per Secretary of Defense, Robert Gates’ request). North Carolina and the United States deserve to make the most of talent and desire to serve already within our borders, we deserve to have our Senator take leadership on these important issues.

If you’re in the Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill area today, join us to urge Senator Hagan to do the right thing by passing the DREAM Act and repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. You can find us at:

310 New Bern Avenue Raleigh, NC 27601

If you can’t be there, please make a phone call to Senator Hagan’s Greensboro office at 336-333-5311 and tell her that North Carolina supports the DREAM Act.

When those who are protected by the law stand up for those who aren’t, things happen - Senator Richard Durbin (D-IL)

It’s election day. A time when, after long fought battles to gain the right to vote, less than half of registered voters actually go out and engage the democratic process. That is why our DREAMers took to the phones and to the streets, bringing out voters to make their voices heard. This action, inspired by Voto Latino’s Vote4Me campaign, has shown that the youth fighting for the DREAM Act take the election of their representatives seriously, and desire to fully and truly engage in the country that they call home.

Photo by Justin Valas

The spectacle of so many young people outside of the polls, dressed in graduation caps and gowns, drew attention from many others in the crowd today. “Stay strong. This situation just isn’t right, I’ll remember you all when I’m voting,” one passer-by told me. We also had one excited supporter (already familiar with the DREAM Act) come up to us on her way to cast her ballot, thanking us for being out there and drawing attention to our cause.

Photo by J. Valas

Our friends and allies at El Pueblo took charge in setting up this march to the polls, while members of the DREAM Team helped phone-bank and showed up to encourage the crowd and share information about the DREAM Act. Though the DREAMers that showed up cannot vote, there were more than enough eligible voters supporting us to help amplify our voices. In fact, the ratio of voters that morning supporting us to DREAMers ended up being more than 4:1!

Photo by J. Valas

We are finished having our voices and calls for recognition ignored by politicians. This October 30th we showed that DREAMers are committed to participating in our country, and that we are not alone. At the polls, we spoke with Representative Brad Miller (D - NC13) who had previously supported the DREAM Act. After taking a photo with our one-time champion, we thanked him for his previous support and asked him when could we expect to see his name among the co-sponsors of our DREAMs. He responded with a similar refrain to what he had told us in previous encounters, saying “I’ll try to, as soon as I can.”

Photo by J. Valas

That answer just isn’t good enough, Representative Miller. With the strength that we have shown in bringing voters to the polls and informing them of the impact of Congressional inaction on our lives, it is clear that DREAMers are a force to be reckoned with. With another chance to pass the DREAM Act during the upcoming session in November, we expect leadership from our delegates- we expect their support for the DREAM Act and its passage this fall.

Today is the day to have your voice heard, to make the voices of DREAM Act youth around the country heard. If you can, vote. I know I will. If you haven’t already made up your mind, here is a handy voters tool to find which politicians most closely support your views and the NC Board of Elections Polling Place locator.

It has been assumed by some, that the only activists speaking out for the DREAM Act are undocumented. Today in Carrboro, that assumption was shattered by our documented/citizen, student allies from UNC-Chapel Hill, Duke, and NC State University. These same allies who have taken the initiative to organize “die-ins” for the DREAM and a successful march/protest against Arizona’s SB 1070, continued their strong advocacy for their undocumented peers and friends.

Our friends and allies- Michelle, Christine, Ariel, and Lupe know that as students, they have a lot of power. They showed that power by taking that message to the airwaves today on WCOM‘s “Time Out” with Bill Hendrickson.

During their interview, they called out the media for their misrepresentations about the DREAM Act. One of those tackled early in the show was the ever popular “amnesty” libel. The stringent restrictions on the DREAM Act require hard work and commitment as a way to earn their permanent residency (green card), not be gifted with citizenship. In the eyes of one of the panelists, these DREAMers  already represent some of the best parts of America and are the same as other American youth, apart from their paperwork. They also stood up against the media’s irresponsible use of the I-word.

The students went on to remind listeners of the merits of the DREAM Act. Besides being the just and right thing to do, it will be of great economic benefit to North Carolina and the United States. By making the most of the potential already here, our society will benefit both immediately and in the long run, in part through better jobs and increased wages which would greatly benefit the tax base.

These four qualified, intelligent, and hard working young women earned their spaces as students at three of North Carolina’s prestigious universities. The do not fear the addition of DREAMers to their classrooms. “They [DREAMers] are qualified- intellectually, academically and it’s just their immigration status holding them back from being able to achieve a college degree. Some, even more qualified than I am,” remarked one of the panelists.

The host, after learning more details about the actual provisions of the bill, stated “I don’t see anything that looks controversial in the bill.” According to 70% of Americans, there isn’t. Mr. Hendricks recalled how long passage of the DREAM Act has been deferred: “It seems like Senate and House politicians continue to dance around the bill as if it were a costume ball…” and that the DREAM Act deserved to be “at the top of the list” of things that our representatives should be tackling.

After giving out Senator Hagan’s phone number on the air (202-224-6342) and urging people to call, write letters, and send faxes, the interview came to an end with the host committing to fax his letter of support to both Senators Kay Hagan and Richard Burr.

Today, more voices joined the growing chorus of those who are documented and unafraid to stand with those who are undocumented and unafraid. Senator Hagan, will you join us?

Last month, the Senate failed to pass the defense authorization bill for the first time in 48 years. This was the result of a filibuster led by Republicans and backed by two Democrats.

Senators’ main argument against the bill was that two amendments, the DREAM Act and a repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, were “extraneous” and had nothing to do with defense. Clearly, they misunderstand the meaning of the word. Repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell would allow gays and lesbians to serve openly and honestly in the military.

And the DREAM Act would allow undocumented immigrants who were brought to the U.S. as children, graduated from U.S. high schools, and have no criminal record to earn legal status by serving in the military or attending a four-year university.

Unlike our elected officials whose rhetoric often aims to divide, these groups recognize that immigrant rights and LGBTQ rights are closely connected. Both groups are scapegoated, face multiple forms of discrimination, and are denied basic human rights and protections under our nation’s laws.

While politicians continue to play games with their lives, undocumented and LGBTQ communities are reaching out and supporting each other in their fight for justice for all. Click here to read their recently released unity statement.

by Justin Valas

Brave youth, standing up and loudly proclaiming that they are “Undocumented and Unafraid” are the driving force behind this movement. There are also others in this movement as well- providing support and encouragement for the brave youth clamoring for their rights and recognition. These allies come from all walks of life and have different connections pulling them into the movement.

Despite Tuesday’s failure of former and tepid allies in the United States Senate to get to work on repairing our shamefully broken immigration laws regarding young people - this is not over.

In fact, actions are escalating. The pressure and momentum behind the DREAM Act continues to grow. Recently, student activists in North Carolina have begun taking direct action to support the struggle of their undocumented peers. Students at the University of North Carolina - Chapel Hill and Duke University have begun a series of die-in‘s for the DREAM Act.

The first events happened simultaneously in both Chapel Hill and Durham. Thursday, September 16th saw 10 students at Duke University and 20 at UNC- Chapel Hill die-in for the DREAMs of their undocumented peers. On Sunday the 19th, 25 activists converged on Triangle Town Center Mall. A further 50 gathered on Monday the 20th on The Streets at Southpoint. Tuesday the 21st saw a total of 15 advocates die-in at two different times on Duke University’s campus.

Photo by J. Valas

More than 100 people have taken action, “dying” in solidarity with the 2.1 million youth across this country waiting for our leaders to stop playing political games with their futures. They have reached new audiences and invited them to take a stand for a better future for us all. That is powerful.

Photo by J. Valas

It makes me proud to see the success of these events. Especially as we see more leaders take ownership in this movement- to see them start making plans, coordinating, and continuing to escalate. This is a message we need Senator Hagan to see, one that she can’t ignore. This movement is growing and diversifying. We are more than just our group in North Carolina. Students and citizens are calling for justice for these immigrant youth, for the DREAMers. Stories are appearing in student newspapers supporting the DREAM Act. We are continuing to raise awareness and utilize more tools to find a way to break through to Senator Hagan.  The students of North Carolina don’t fear the inclusion of their undocumented peers- so why does our Senator?

Photo by J. Valas

Senator Hagan- please, speak with us; listen to our stories; and open your mind and heart. The DREAM Act is a good thing, the just thing, for North Carolina and the United States. It is a good and just thing for the millions of youth who want to contribute as full partners in the enterprise that is America. These youth dream of the American Dream- how much longer will you let that DREAM die?

by Justin Valas

Every year, 65,000 undocumented students graduate from a high school in the United States. Every year, our immigration system says to 65,000 youth “no matter your contributions, no matter your hard work, no matter your dedication to the American Dream, no matter the skills you bring to the enterprise that is the United States of America- quietly accept your station, resign yourself from realizing your potential.”

That is an injustice no matter your particular political persuasion.

Photo by Bri Connors

Each year North Carolina, and the United States, deprives itself of the valuable skills and contributions of immigrant youth because of a broken and ineffective immigration system. That’s why we’re struggling for the DREAM Act, that’s why we’re fighting the separation of families, that’s why we rallied in front of Senator Hagan’s Raleigh office to demand that she stop silencing our success. Each day that she holds back from supporting the DREAM Act and its countless benefits to this country, she is letting the dreams of hard working and inspiring youth die. She is forcing us to miss out on a better North Carolina for us all.Photo by Justin Valas

These youth are American in all but paper and call the United States home. They dream of being able to be fully recognized as members in their communities. They are hard-workers, valedictorians, aspiring teachers, engineers, soldiers, and lawyers.

This was the third Triangle-area DREAM Action on Thursday. Earlier in the day, some of our wonderful allies- students at Duke and UNC- organized die-in‘s for the DREAM Act on their campuses. In all, dozens of student allies died for the DREAMs of their peers, raising awareness, creating questions, and connecting passersby with the tools to contact Senator Hagan and urge her to support the DREAM Act. Later in the evening, nearly 50 of us marched through the streets of Raleigh, silently showing our strength and resilience.

Photo by B. Connors
Actions speak louder than words. We did not need to say anything, we decided that we could not make a difference from the sideline- as Senator Hagan is known to say. We refuse to waste our talents. We refuse to remain silent. If we are willing to take risks, to take action for what is right, we are calling on Senator Hagan to do the same. Senator, come off the sidelines, join us in our struggle for justice, a better North Carolina, and a better United States- support the DREAM Act!

Our efforts are even more effective when the Senator hears from our supporters. So please, take 2 minutes (or more, if you’re so inclined) to call Senator Kay Hagan at least once a day and tell her to support a stronger, more vibrant North Carolina- Tell her to support the DREAM Act (S.729). 1-888-254-5087
