Waiting for a DREAM Act vote

Students at a makeshift calling center at the UCLA Labor Center in the Westlake district of Los Angeles watch C-SPAN 2 in anticipation of a U.S. Senate vote on the DREAM Act, which would provide a path to legal status for undocumented youths who attend college or join the military. Since last week, supporters of the proposed legislation have been making calls to legislators from here and other calling banks.

The proposal is attached as an amendment to a defense bill. A vote is expected any minute.
