The US Senate is reportedly one vote away from passing cloture for the so-called DREAM Act, which would allow a path towards citizenship for millions of illegals if the attend colleges or serve in the military.
The bill passed the House during a late-night session last week with a vote of 216-198. It was then shelved by Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid after Republicans threatened to filibuster any legislation not related to the Bush tax cuts.
It is believed the single vote belongs to Massachusetts Republican Scott Brown, who has disappointed many in the GOP with his RINO-like votes since getting into office. The Associated Press reports a coalition of left-wing educators, religious leaders and advocates are making last-ditch efforts to pressure Brown into voting for the legislation.
The bill also contains the line allowing Janet Napolitano to arbitrarily waive any and all provisions and grant mass Amnesty to about every illegal alien in America if she or her successor wants to:
Grass-roots conservatives were stunned to hear former House Speaker Newt Gingrich support the two main tenants of the DREAM Act during an interview on the Laura Ingraham Show at the beginning of the month.
The story is being under-reported or being ignored by not only the mainstream media but conservative outlets as well, as focus on the Wikileaks Cablegate scandal and political drama surrounding the Bush tax cuts takes center stage.
We are so screwed.
The fix is in...
RINO Scott will buckle...
It will take two GOP votes, not one. Mark Kirk has already been seated.
You’re right, he will buckle.
I predict he wilkl NOT buckle. If he does he can kiss re-election in 2012 goodbye and he KNOWS IT.
Are these Senators Americans?
People need to call. The scum always passes destroy America bills on Christmas Eve to show their real hate for us. The Fed Reseave was voted on Christmas Eve back then.
WTH happened to the plan to hold up all legislation until the tax code issue is resolved?
“..House Speaker Newt Gingrich support the two main tenants..”
Newt is a POS.
Call instead of posting FILTH here.
Scott Brown can be primaried, next time around. His was a special election... When is he up for election again?
the RINOs and GOP COULD have stopped this in the House,
but they did not show up, and let Castle-Rove-Romney
get their revenge.
The Rinocrat Oligarchy has no ears.....
Say "auf wiedersehen" to the Conservative vote if you run in '12 then, Newtie.
We have a lawless government.
