We are excited to announce that Congressman McMahon has become a co-sponsor of the DREAM Act (Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act).

Last Monday, June 21st, local immigrant youth, Congressman McMahon, El Centro and other community partners held a press event to announce McMahon’s support for this important legislation.
