DREAM Act fail

Supporters of the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act of 2009 (S. 729), commonly known as the DREAM Act, have been let down again by Congress. The bill would provide a path to citizenship for young undocumented immigrants through attending two years of college or serving in the U.S. military. . . . . The final tally, at 2:30 PM today, was 56-43. Two Arkansas Democrats, Blanche Lincoln and Mark Pryor, joined the GOP in opposition, and Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski of Alaska did not vote. Sen. Reid ultimately voted “nay” in a procedural move that will allow him to raise the bill again in the Senate.


In 2008, Obama, Pelosi and Reid promised to pass the DREAM Act.

But, they didn't bring it up when they had 60 votes in the Senate.

Instead, they waited until after they lost their sixtieth seat, and until after they lost the midterm election.

Who owns the failure to pass the DREAM Act?
