Individual Rights and Collective Responsibilities

By Rachel B. Tiven

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, February 2011

The author laments the US Senate's failure to pass the Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors (DREAM) Act in December 2010, on the same day that it passed the repeal of the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy which had barred gays and lesbians from serving openly in the US military. The American Jewish community should zealously champion immigrant rights, the author argues.
