DREAM Act Passes the House of Rep & goes to Senate Tomorrow

December 8th, 2010 · 5 Comments

This just in — the DREAM act has passed in the House of Representatives 216-198 with eight votes on the GOP side voting yes. Tomorrow the Senate will vote on it, but it’s going to be more difficult in the upper house. So for those of you supporting the DREAM act, calls still need to be made between now and tomorrow. The toll free number for the Senate is: 1-866-996-5161.

    They did the right thing and not passing this piece of junk!

    No such luck- it has been tabled as expected.
    I think we should let Obama know that we know he has used us.

    You can let him know on election day 2012.

    Irma,

    The bill was tabled so that the Senate can vote on the House version, which from the standpoint of advocates is a good thing. Read this for more info:

    In essence, the Senate Dems bought themselves more time. Tabling the bill doesn’t mean its dead, but this is the narrative that the traditional media wants to spin. Maybe Obama has used us, but I think that Dems and GOPers are equally as culpable in this immigration battle.
