Support the DREAM Act for legalizing minors

On immigration, McAuliffe said it would be "one of my finest hours" as governor if he could sign a state version of the DREAM Act, which would grant legal status to some immigrants who arrived in the United States illegally as minors.

Cuccinelli said he wanted to see "some sort of compromise reached on immigration" and said a path to citizenship "could be part of the proposal."

Register voters in Spanish at citizen naturalization events

At a naturalization swearing-in ceremony in 2001, thousands of newly naturalized citizens streamed out, thrilled to be clutching their new citizenship papers. We had 20 college students talking to people about our New Voter Registrations Initiative, handing out materials in English and Spanish and urging people to register to vote. The GOP registration effort consisted of two older ladies sitting at a card table, and I guess the ladies got tired of sitting there while we had a long line of people wanting to sign up. They called the cops on us.

"You're going to have to shut this down," a young police officer told me. "You're creating a scene and disturbing the peace."

I called his bluff: "Officer, make my day," I said. "Please, put handcuffs on me. I want you to arrest the chairman of the Democratic Party for being out here registering new voters."

"Okay, maybe not," he said. "Just try to keep your kids quiet." Then he and his partner drove away; the two blue hairs sat there glaring at me.
