Clinton reminded the President that his decision to “disrupt hundreds of thousands of #DREAMers’ lives” is not quite in line with what a National Prayer Day represents.
DREAMers are those who have benefitted from the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act “who were brought to the country at an early age without documentation but have assimilated to U.S. culture and have been educated by U.S. school systems.” Because they were brought into the United States by no fault of their own, but know no life outside of this country, many politicians on both sides of the aisle support this program and those affected by it.
