Senate To Resume Consideration of DOD Authorization Bill (H.R. 1585)

This week the Senate will consider the Defense Authorization bill (H.R. 1585) for the first time since Senator Durbin (D-IL) introduced the DREAM Act (S.A. 2919) as an amendment last Friday. Senator Durbin continues his pursuit of a Senate vote on the amendment this week. Meanwhile, DREAM's opponents continue their aggressive attempts to derail the amendment altogether.

If passed, the DREAM Act would facilitate access to college for immigrant students in the U.S and provide a path to permanent residence for ambitious immigrant youth who were brought to the U.S. as young children and who want to pursue higher education or military service.
