DREAM Act is Back (Again)

Will this bill never die? There were rumors last week that Reid would attach DREAM to the Labor-Health and Human Services-Education appropriation as an amendment. I didn't mention it because every last rumor could be traced to a single release from the John Birch Society.

Today comes notice from Reid that the Senate may take up the bill again, though not as a part of the HHS appropriation. From the Congressional Quarterly's summary of this week's activity:

Beyond the spending bill, it is unclear what legislation will round out next week’s floor schedule. The chamber could take up an immigration bill related to children (S 774), said Regan Lachapelle, a Reid spokeswoman.

Sponsored by Richard J. Durbin, D-Ill., the bill would allow children of illegal immigrants who entered the United States before age 16 and lived here at least five years to gain conditional legal status. Under the bill, they could attain eventual citizenship if they attend college or enlist in the military for at least two years.

At this point, I'd hope our guys and gals in the Senate know what we think about this legislation. However, it doesn't hurt to keep an eye on them.
