Barack Obama Takes Executive Action on DREAM Act

Chris Maddaloni/CQ Roll Call

“We’re thrilled that the president has stood with DREAMers across the U.S. today and has finally extended the ‘hope and change’ to them that he promised in 2008,” said Robin McGehee, executive director of GetEQUAL. “And as the president hosts LGBT advocates at the White House today to celebrate LGBT Pride Month, we call on President Obama to issue the executive order that we have been calling for since the beginning of the year.”

Clarification: 11:12 a.m.

An earlier version of this article incorrectly identified the decision. It is an executive action, not an executive order.
