Dennis Moore now a co-sponsor of the DREAM Act

Maybe it worked.

Less than two weeks ago, Will Suarez, a student at Johnson County Community College, organized a rally at the office of Congressman Dennis Moore. The Peru native wanted the Kansas Democrat to sign on to the DREAM Act, federal legislation that would make higher education accessible for undocumented kids, many of whom were brought into this country before they even knew how to read.

In a meeting that day, Moore expressed support for the measure. But Suarez wanted the congressman to step it up and co-sponsor the bill. Moore didn’t commit immediately, but he told Suarez he’d think about it.
