DREAM Act activist script:
“Hi, I was calling to ask that the Rep. Pastor do the right thing and help stop Edi Arma’s (A#089-815-011) deportation. Edi should never have been given a removal order in the first place and it is the wrong move by the member to now deny helping Edi because of it. Why is the representative refusing to bring Edi home to his family? I am really upset by this.”
