Florida’s economic engine becomes more productive as the proportion of educated workers increases. Young undocumented immigrants, otherwise known as Dreamers, for decades have enrolled into our higher education institutions, and have helped diversify and fufil labor needs. Yet, without the passing of a permanent legislative solution, the potential of these bright young minds is capped. Join us in advocating for permanent protections for Dreamers, who have been on the frontlines of our economic recovery and deserve a path to citizenship.
