New York State to Pass Jose R. Peralta Dream Act

Mario Cilento, president of the New York State AFL-CIO said “This issue is about fairness, opportunity and inclusion which is why it has been a priority of the Labor Movement for so long. It is about giving the children of immigrants an opportunity to achieve the American dream. And it is about making sure they realize their full potential which will ultimately make our state even stronger; something we all benefit from. 

I want to thank Speaker Carl Heastie who has always been a steadfast supporter of the Jose R. Peralta DREAM Act and I thank bill sponsor Assemblymember Carmen De la Rosa, and the Assembly Majority for their ongoing support on this critical issue.”
