On Wednesday after 8 hours of the hunger strike, Senator Hutchison responded:
“The Senator appreciates the passion of these young people for their cause, but she has been clear that she does not support the current DREAM Act legislation,” the statement said. “The Senator had previously proposed a way for students, who have gotten their primary and secondary education in the United States and want to go to college here, to get a temporary visa. She believes the current legislation goes far beyond the intended group of children who have grown up in America.”
As of right now, we want to have a meeting with her so we can discuss the issue. We are continuing striking, filling petitions and making calls.
