Nov. 9, 2017 - Activists including many students filled the ground floor of Hart Senate Office Building in a well-organized protest to urge Congress to adopt a "clean" DREAM Act.  On Sept. 5 the Trump Administration announced its decision to rescind the DACA program in six months, while calling on Congress to act (+).  Senators Lindsey Graham (R-SC), Dick Durbin (D-IL), Jeff Flake (R-AZ), and Chuck Schumer (D-NY) had introduced the Dream Act of 2017 on July 20.  Senators Thom Tillis (R-NC), Jim Lankford (R-OK) and Orrin Hatch (R-UT) introduced a conservative proposal on Sept. 25.  Their SUCCEED Act (Solution for Undocumented Children through Careers, Employment, Education, and Defending our nation) is described as "a solution for undocumented children" but with "more rigorous requirements for undocumented children to earn and keep legal status" than the DREAM Act.
