Reid adds controversial immigration measure to defense bill
Posted: September 14th, 2010 05:55 PM ET

From CNN Congressional Producer Ted Barrett

Harry Reid said he will add the DREAM Act to a defese policy bill next week.

Washington (CNN) - Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Tuesday he will add the DREAM Act, a controversial immigration measure, to a defense policy bill the Senate will take up next week.

The decision means the defense bill, which often passes with bipartisan support, will be home to two major, thorny political issues the other being the repeal of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy.

Reid called the DREAM Act "really important" and said it should be passed because it provides a path to citizenship for young illegal immigrants who go to college or serve in the military. DREAM is an acronym for Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act.

"I know we can't do comprehensive immigration reform," Reid said at a news conference. "But those Republicans we had in the last Congress have left us."


Many Hispanic voters are angry with Democratic leaders for not doing more to pass an immigration overhaul. The decision by Reid to add the DREAM Act now could help soothe that anger.

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell called Reid's decision "needlessly controversial."
The Senate will need 60 votes to take up the bill next week, and Reid said Tuesday he doesn't know if he has enough votes.

I hear there's ways to exploit the Dream Act for out of state residents too. If you want to attend a state university for in-state rates there's supposed to be ways to manipulate it. Depends on each state's residency requirements. I think Iowa requires 5 years. Some states only 6 months. So go move there for 6 months.
Gonna see what I can pull off for U of Iowa cause it's it has an awesome Creative Writing school that's also writes for films.

I think I might be willing to meet them on the military service. But citizenship just for going to college? **** that.

I'm not willing to pay foreigners to fight for America. I think that brings other problems.
