DREAM voted down

December 18, 2010 § Leave a comment

Senate Republicans and a handful of Democrats voted Saturday morning to block Legislation that would grant legal residency to Illegal Immigrants who came to the US before the age of 16. The DREAM Act, which would give legal status to Illegal Immigrants who came to the country at a young age, lived here for at least five years, graduated from High School and attended college or served in the Military, fell five votes short of the 60 needed to overcome a GOP-led Filibuster 55 to 41.
