Over at the Drum Major Institute's blog, Cristina Jimenez reports that the young members of immigrant communities who worked hard to get Barack Obama elected aren't taking promises of the change they sought for granted:

"Today, with Barrack Obama as the new elected president, immigrant youth are reenergized and looking forward to the next administration to deliver its promises. Immigrant youth and the broader youth electorate are ready to hold the new administration accountable. Using the internet as one of their tools, immigrant youth are building a strong movement aimed at empowering, organizing youth, and holding president-elect Obama to his promises.

"At Change.org, for example, immigrant youth got the DREAM Act to be one of the Ideas for Change with the most votes. As a writer from DreamActivist says, 'We must continue to support each other and grow together as a movement if we want to win our Dreams, and together we can and we will.'"

Maybe the kids are alright after all.
