Students are gathered at the UCLA Downtown Labor Center this morning to make last-minute calls to legislators and await a vote on the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act, which would grant conditional legal status to qualifying undocumented youths who attend college or join the military.

House and Senate votes are expected today; a Senate vote, which had been expected this morning, has been moved up to mid-afternoon Eastern time.
