DREAM Act Passes House, Awaits Vote in Senate

The House passed its version of the DREAM Act late Wednesday, which would provide a path to citizenship for undocumented children who graduate from college or serve in the military. The Senate today decided to kill its own version of the bill – most likely because of the expectation that it would not receive enough passing votes. There is speculation that the Senate will instead put the House-passed version up for a vote early next week after the taxes and spending legislation is cleared.
