Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid has confirmed (@3:30) that the DREAM Act will be part of next week’s defense vote and hopes it will pass! Last night, Jorge Ramos voiced that the DREAM Act is the best plan of action in terms of immigration legislation this year, the Plan B. The opposition is already prompting their base to say NO to DREAM. WE NEED TO KEEP THE PRESSURE ON!
