Next step on DREAM Act: A stand-alone bill, supporters say

|

Today’s Senate vote blocking a defense bill that included the DREAM Act – proposed legislation that would create a path to legal status for undocumented youths who go to college or join the military – is being seen as a temporary hurdle by the bill’s supporters, some of whom rallied this afternoon in downtown Los Angeles following the vote.

The U.S. Senate has voted 56-43 against taking up a defense bill with an amendment that would have included the Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act, known as the DREAM Act, which would provide a path to legal status for undocumented youths who attend college or enlist in the military.
