CFIR/AFSC Statement on Military Service and the DREAM Act:
While we have always supported the growing movement of immigrant students in demanding their right to education, the military service component of the DREAM Act concerns us.
Education is a human right, and yet immigrant students with in our public school systems face many challenges; they are routinely tracked for behavior and pushed out of schools with racist policies often resulting in poor preparation for college. Studies have shown that for every immigrant student who will attend a two or four year college, twenty will not. Given the pervasiveness of targeted military recruiting among young people of color and the negative effects on their lives, communities, and futures, CFIR/AFSC, as a social justice & peace organization, denounces the poverty draft and its influence.
We reject the military service component which serves as a de facto military draft for undocumented youth. Rather, we believe that immigrant youth should be able to qualify for the benefits of the DREAM Act (instate tuition & a path to citizenship) by performing community service for a more just society, in addition to enrolling in higher education.
