It's dead in the senate. Reid can't muster the votes.
Very cool. This is NOT comprehensive immigration reform, but at least it isn't totally caving in like every other liberal agenda item.
The fact is that many good people will be rewarded for their good behavior, the only people who are getting legal status are those who deserve it. Lowlifes are not part of this bill.
It's for people who were brought here as children, remained here for many years and have excelled in education (a bachelors degree) or military service with no records of legal problems and good moral character. It's pretty restrictive, really only allows the top succeeders. You can't really blame children who were brought here by their parents and proceeded to integrate well and excel in society.
Personally, I am in full support of totally reforming immigration but I think this is a fair compromise.
Laws change. If this DREAM act passes, then it will be the Law.
