Dispelling DREAM Act Myths
November 23, 2010

Washington D.C. - The DREAM Act - a popular proposal to provide legal status to undocumented youth who entered the U.S. as children, graduated from U.S. high schools, and attend college or enter the military - is the target of a smear campaign from anti-immigration hardliners. This tired effort to pit immigrants and native-born, whether they are workers or students, against one another is not only destructive, but has no basis in fact.  Moreover, it ignores the economic benefits that come from legalizing a group of talented, hard-working individuals who want nothing more than to contribute to America and repay the country for the opportunities they've been given.

Research has shown that providing a legal status for young people who have a proven record of success in the United States would be a boon to the economy and the U.S. workforce. The U.S. military also needs the DREAM Act. Deputy Undersecretary of Defense for Military Personnel Policy, Bill Carr, stated that the law would be "good for readiness" and would help to recruit "cream of the crop" students.  The DREAM Act is part of the Department of Defense's 2010-2012 Strategic Plan to assist the military in its recruiting efforts.

Yet, despite the popular support and extensive data that should make passage of the DREAM Act a no-brainer, there are those who continue to spread half-truths. The Immigration Policy Center has compiled a fact check that breaks down typical myths about the DREAM Act.

To view the fact check, in its entirety see:

ESSAKANE DOCUMENTARY features The Most Remote Music Festival in the World 

Watch the trailer on Kickstarter and help the filmmakers raise money
 to complete the documentary, click here


We are three independent filmmakers telling the story of the most remote music festival in the world - the Festival Du Desert - and the battle to make it happen. Once a year, just outside of Timbuktu, the greatest rock and blues musicians from across Africa and around the world come together to sustain peace through music. What makes this festival so unique? First, it’s held in the mystical land of Tuareg nomads where camels race during the day and, when the temperature drops, the desert moon rises, the sand dunes shift, and the festival-goers become immersed in the complex musical rhythms that have been rocking this desert for the last thousand years. While the music plays musicians speak and sing about local issues such as the rights of women, of Tuareg rights, and of reconciliation. The festival is a homegrown approach to sustaining peace, democracy, and for developing tourism in Mali.
Yet, each year it’s a fight to make this festival happen thanks to Western travel advisories warning against travel to the festival. Each year thousands defy the warnings and travel safely to Mali to experience this incredible music collaboration. Past festival attendees include the likes of Robert Plant, JImmy Buffet, Ali Farka Toure, Animal Collective, Tom Freston, and more. In order to assuage the fears of tourists, the government of Mali will provide enhanced security for the event – a sign of their commitment to ensure the festival takes places.
We need money to cover our travel expenses and costs to bring our crew to Mali for two weeks to film this festival as well as interview the musicians, organizers, government officials, and participants who all come together to create the Festival in the Desert. Our film participants already include electric guitarist, Vieux Farka Toure, New York jazz musician turned Griot, Leni Stern, Mali’s own Diva of the Desert, Khaira Arby, and NPR music correspondent, Banning Eyre.
