Senate Rejects DREAM Act

In spite of supporters' claims that the bill had broad bipartisan support, a cloture motion to proceed with debate on the bill failed 52-44. A cloture motion requires 60 votes to pass. Durbin had previously predicted that support for the motion would be in the "mid-50s."

In a statement on the Senate floor after the vote, Durbin thanked the 11 Republicans who voted for cloture. He called the bill's failure "a sad and troubling moment in the history of American history." He vowed to keep pushing the issue he's been supporting for five years.

They are so out-of-touch with the American people. The American people spoke loud and clear already on this matter. But Durbin and his colleagues that support this "Nightmare Act" don't care what we think.

And what makes it "a sad and troubling moment in the history of American history" now at this particular moment in time? Since our independence, some 230+ years ago, we have not had the "The Nightmare Act."

How did we get along this long without it? Was it a troubling moment in history 6 six years ago before he started supporting and pushing it?
