DREAM PASSES HOUSE 216-198

Rate this Entry

Reports that the Dems lacked the votes in the House were circulating this afternoon, but proved incorrect. The Senate will be tougher. They delayed their vote until tomorrow morning hoping that the vote in the House would give some momentum to the DREAMers.

    Seems like quite a few Reps abstained or simply absconded!

    I am waiting to see if they have anything for the legals in the next 3-6 months if the Senate passes Dream Act tomorrow.

    With King and Smith incharge, you can keep waiting. Adding to Dream was the best chance. Forget any immigration for next 2-3yrs.

    DREAM is a joke in the face of law abiding LEGALS. I wish republicans will take that issue.

    I have a gut feeling that the Senate will be able to pass it now.

    As a legal waiting in line for these many years, I feel good for the students who depend on DREAM Act; but feel sorry and helpless for the countless legals like me who have been waiting in line, paying all the taxes, without an iota of any expectation of any sort of returns.

    Absolutely right! Pandering to white skin worshippers masquerading as Christians who use the Sharia Law when it suits them!

    Companies that depend on high skill immigrants should lobby the Chamber of Commerce as it has a lot of pull with republicans to introduce bills targeted to aid legal immigrants. You know that the Chamber will be asking for donations for 2012 how about doing some favors in exchange for that.... that is the only way republicans would move on this if business asks them to!!

    The Senate approved a motion this morning (59-40) to table proceedings on the Senate's own version of the DREAM Act, S. 3992. This allows the Senate to take up the House-passed version next week. The House measure H.R. 5281 passed last night by a 216-198 vote.

    Can you tell us what republicans voted in support or the whole roll call on this measure.

    I guess is more like RIP DREAM

    CNN) -- Senate Democrats conceded Thursday they don't have the votes to pass the DREAM Act, a bill that would have offered a path to citizenship for some illegal immigrants who entered the United States as children.
    Democrats voted to pull the measure from consideration on Thursday. That likely kills any chance of passage this year for the hotly contested bill, Senate supporters say.
    Senate Republicans opposed the bill, standing by their pledge to block any legislation during the lame duck session until the chamber approves bills to extend the Bush tax cuts and fund the government

    To SG:
    Whoever qualifies for the DREAM Act will have to go through an immigration process different from that of everyone else waiting to gain residency or citizenship. Therefore, it will not affect you nor all those who are already waiting.


    Also, just a note:
    The DREAM Act will not let dangerous criminals benefit from it, as has been the concern of many recently. In order to quality for the DREAM Act, undocumented youth will need to be in good moral standing.

    Furthermore, the DREAM Act will not take away scholarships or college money from any legal students. Those who qualify for the DREAM Act will only be eligible receive loans for college and everything they receive must be paid back. Also, DREAM Act students will not qualify for things such as the Pell Grant.

    Finally, the DREAM Act will only benefit the United States' economy by providing this country with an eager and capable workforce. It will also help lessen the national deficit because each undocumented youth looking to benefit from the DREAM Act will have to pay 2,525$ in filling fees.
