Pro "dreamer" activist groups throughout congressional district 19 are rallying today  outside congressman Jon Faso’s Kinderhook office to demand a clean DREAM Act before the holidays.

Today's action kicks off a week of events leading up to the December 22nd spending bill vote. Activists plan to deliver a petition demanding Faso support a clean DREAM Act and they'll call for the Congressman to withhold his vote on any spending bill that does not include a clean DREAM Act.  Along with the petition, the group will deliver letters from children in Faso’s district.

Jenifer Benn with the Columbia County Sanctuary Movement invites anyone interested to join them

"We are working with allied organizations and also people within the local area. We're looking for anyone who's available from his distrcit or who's willing to support the movement."

The address is 2 Hudson St, Kinderhook; activists including those from United We Dream and the New York Immigration Coalition will be there from 9 to 5.
