Statement From State Senator Gustavo Rivera On The Senate Vote On The New York State DREAM Act

Gustavo Rivera

"Today's failed attempt to pass the DREAM Act once again demonstrates how the Independent Democratic Conference is not able to deliver bi-partisan support for progressive legislation. Ultimately, this is a Republican-led coalition and not a bi-partisan one. It is truly disappointing that we continue to deny thousands of young New Yorkers the resources necessary for a quality education and a brighter future."
