Texas Congressman Beto O'Rourke says the American people mut be willing to fight to save the Dream Act.
O'Rourke, a Democrat from El Paso say he has had conversations with dozens of undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children. He tells online TV network Cheddar, "Anything good as it happens in this country doesn't come enlightened members of Congress or the Senate. It comes that public pressure that forms the political will to make what would otherwise be possible actually happen." O'Rourke says he will run for Senate in 2018 to challenge Republican Ted Cruz.
