Pelosi Considering DREAM Act Vote in the House

Sources within the Democratic Party are saying that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi wants a vote on the DREAM Act during the lame-duck session, and it could be as soon as next week. The DREAM Act would provide amnesty to illegal aliens who are attending college or serve in the military, but it includes no enforcement provisions and several loopholes that would open the amnesty to many more than it is intended.

The Senate tried to bring the DREAM Act to the floor before the mid-term elections as an amendment to the Defense Authorization bill. A Republican filibuster, however, prevented the Defense bill from even coming to the floor for debate.

Speaker Pelosi said she would keep controversial bills of the House floor in the months leading up to the election, but with the dramatic swing of the Immigration Balance of Power in the House as a result of the elections, she likely sees the lame-duck as the last chance to pass the DREAM Act.

    What I want the government to understand is that how would it feel if you couldn’t have the chance to be who you are now?
