The resolution also states that City Council recommends enactment of the Dream Act, which gives high school graduates who grew up in the United States the opportunity to become citizens if they go to college or serve in the U.S. military.

The proposed resolution was referred to council's intergovernmental relations committee, chaired by Guridy. He said that committee will schedule a meeting very soon.

If approved, the resolution will be sent to U.S. Senators Robert Casey and Patrick Toomey as well as U.S. Rep Charlie Dent.
