DREAM Act Delayed After House Passage. Will Senate Reciprocate?

The Senate just voted to table debate on the DREAM Act until early next week. Will it get the 60 votes needed for passage?

The DREAM Act's fate is delayed yet again.

While the bill was expected to be voted upon by the Senate earlier this morning, legislators just voted to table discussion until next early week, with supporters fearing that Democratic leadership will fall short of the 60 votes needed for passage.


Last night, by a vote of 216 to 198, the House passed the DREAM Act, which would give legal standing to hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrant students. In total, eight Republicans voted in in favor of the bill, while 38 Democrats voted against it.

Will the Senate pass the DREAM Act during the waning days of the 111th Congress? One thing's for certain: Time is running out.
