Reid Pulls DREAM Act From The Floor

Editor’s Note – If we have learned anything over these past two years, it’s that you cannot trust anything Harry Reid or Nancy Pelosi says or does. 

There’s always a motive for their actions and, more often than not, when either takes a step back, it’s only to devise a scheme to circumvent the rules in place or the will of the American people.

If they should suggest that the sky is blue, I strongly recommend that you verify.

The DREAM act will find it’s way to the Senate floor for a vote before adjournment next week simply because Harry Reid has no choice in the matter.  He sold that part of his soul, assuming he has a soul, to the devil back during his campaign to get re-elected.  He promised as much in exchange for the Hispanic vote and God forbid that he return to Nevada without doing so.

 

Reid Pulls DREAM Act From The Floor

As reported by the Federation for American Immigration Reform;

In a desperate attempt to keep the DREAM Act bill alive, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid today moved to table the cloture vote on the Senate version of the DREAM Act (S.3992).  Reid’s goal in doing this was to buy amnesty advocates time so they could bring up the House version of the DREAM Act (H.R.5281), which passed the House last night by a vote of 216-198

On the floor this morning, Senator Reid congratulated the House for passing the DREAM act the night before.  He then said there was no point for the Senate to vote on the Senate bill when they could instead vote on the House bill and send it directly to the President’s desk.  At 11am, when the cloture vote was scheduled on S.3992, Senator Reid moved to table the cloture vote. Reid’s motion to table – which only requires 50 to pass – passed 59 to 40.

Senator Reid’s move was also a tacit acknowledgment that he did not have the votes to pass the Senate version of the DREAM Act.  Most news outlets on Capitol Hill were predicting the bill would fail. 

Now open borders advocates are scrambling for the possibility of the Senate bringing up the House version and are desperately trying to garner more support.  Under Senate rules, Reid will be able to bring up the House bill at any time, but Senate sources tell us that a vote will probably not take place until next week. The Senate is tentatively scheduled to adjourn December 17th.
