Undocumented Activists Occupy Obama Campaign Offices for DREAM Act

HeadlineJun 15, 2012

Undocumented activists have occupied four Obama campaign offices around the country in support of the DREAM Act, which would grant children of undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship. Since Wednesday, the activists have staged sit-ins at Obama for America offices in Oakland, Los Angeles, Cincinnati and Detroit. Obama has voiced support for the DREAM Act, but the activists are urging him to issue an executive order stopping the deportation of undocumented immigrants. The joint actions come days after two undocumented students occupied Obama’s Denver campaign office and staged a hunger strike. Organizers say similar protests will continue until the November elections.
