Senate Kills DREAM Act

Posted on | December 18, 2010 | 6 Comments

Encouraging news everywhere nowadays:

The weeks of rallies, hunger strikes and sit-ins and the thousands of phone calls placed to Senate offices didn’t pay off for immigration activists.
The decade-old DREAM Act once again failed to break a filibuster in the Senate on Saturday morning, effectively killing the bill this year and shutting the door on what perhaps was the last chance for pro-immigration reform legislation until at least the 2012 election.

Via Memeorandum.

UPDATE: Michelle Malkin says five Democrats voted no: Jon Tester (Montana), Max Baucus (Montana), Kay Hagan (North Carolina), Ben Nelson (Nebraska) and Mark Pryor (Arkansas).

Because Democrats hate immigrants!

UPDATE II: Looks like Joe Manchin of West Virginia also voted no.

    I’m not so sure the DREAM Act is really dead after all. It’s been hidden inside another bill, HR 5281, which Harry Reid just referred to committee on 12/16/2010.

    Is that what this looks like to you?
