Congressman Eliot Engel Urges Colleagues to Pass Dream Act PDF Print Email

alt

By Bryant Daniels, Director of Public Affairs, Office of Congressman Eliot L. Engel


Nov. 1, 2017:  Congressman Eliot Engel took to the House floor on October 25 to urge his colleagues to work together and immediately pass the DREAM Act, legislation that would protect the more than 800,000 young DACA recipients whose status in this country has been jeopardized. 

Below is the full text of Congressman Engel's remarks as prepared for delivery:

Mr. Speaker, I rise today to call on the House leadership to bring up the DREAM Act.

Our Dreamers, who came to this country as children, were brought by their parents for a chance to pursue the American Dream. These young Americans go to our colleges and universities, they are our teachers and doctors, and serve in our military.

We cannot afford to upend the lives and dreams of these 800,000 DACA recipients; people like Andres, a Dreamer who lives in my district. Andres came to this country as a child and America is the only home he knows. He attended school here, earned his associates degree, and became a building engineer. He built his personal relationships in our country and contributes every day to our society. His work, his friends, and his family are all in the United States. It would be a cruel mistake to force him to give all that up and send him back to a country he barely knows.

Nearly 9 out of 10 Americans support the DACA program. It is our responsibility to the American people and to the hundreds of thousands of young dreamers in this country to pass the DREAM Act now. Thank you.

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville Overview

Bronxville is a quaint village (one square mile) located just 16 miles north of midtown Manhattan (roughly 30 minutes on the train) and has a population of approximately 6,500. It is known as a premier community with an excellent public school (K-12) and easy access to Manhattan. Bronxville offers many amenities including an attractive business district, a hospital (Lawrence Hospital), public paddle and tennis courts, fine dining at local restaurants, two private country clubs and a community library.

While the earliest settlers of Bronxville date back to the first half of the 18th century, the history of the modern suburb of Bronxville began in 1890 when William Van Duzer Lawrence purchased a farm and commissioned the architect, William A. Bates, to design a planned community of houses for well-known artists and professionals that became a thriving art colony. This community, now called Lawrence Park, is listed on the National register of Historic Places and many of the homes still have artists’ studios. A neighborhood association within Lawrence Park called “The Hilltop Association” keeps this heritage alive with art shows and other events for neighbors.

Bronxville offers many charming neighborhoods as well as a variety of living options for residents including single family homes, town houses, cooperatives and condominiums. One of the chief benefits of living in “the village” is that your children can attend the Bronxville School.

The Bronxville postal zone (10708, known as “Bronxville PO”) includes the village of Bronxville as well as the Chester Heights section of Eastchester, parts of Tuckahoe and the Lawrence Park West, Cedar Knolls, Armour Villa and Longvale sections of Yonkers. Many of these areas have their own distinct character. For instance, the Armour Villa section has many historic homes and even has its own newsletter called “The Villa Voice” which reports on neighborhood news.
