Legislators stunned the pundits this evening by defeating a $200 million taxpayer giveaway to illegal aliens students in New York's Senate, which had the strong support of Governor Andrew Cuomo.
The 'DREAM Act' was defeated by a 30-29 vote in the state Senate just minutes ago in Albany.

the Dems are already judge shopping
Good news, hope it holds.
Dems are quaking I their boots over the November elections.
I hope Texas will do the same thing!
We sure have our share and more, of illegals in our state.
Wow.....Only means they’ll reintroduce it until it does pass.
Or maybe Obama will do it for all the states.
I’m sure Cuomo is on the phone with his goon squad.
Why aren’t the being rounded up and deported from these rallies. Grab them, process them and have them repatriated in less than 12 hours.
Good. People should not be rewarded for breaking our laws.
Incredible. Goes to show even a few state Senators in Albany can still smell political poison on occasion.
As I recall, legislatively, the districting was almost impossible to change.
According to Wiki, the current make up is:
Republican - 29
Democrat - 28
Independent Democrat - 4
Vacancy - 2
Just Republicans, I'm afraid.
I haven't seen the vote tally.
But there are 29 Republicans in the state senate.
All they needed was one Independent Democrat (a New York party) to vote with them, and the other three to call in sick or abstain.
Well, give them a few days. They’ll “convince” someone to switch.
I agree. It is utterly ridiculous that our NYC public schools are chronically short on materials. For example, teachers have to spend $30-40 or more of their own money a week just to get xeroxing of classroom materials done, such is the paper shortage in some schools. This would be considerably relieved if they booted the illegals who have NO right to a free education paid for by NY taxpayers. And the utter CHUTZPAH of them to demonstrate and DEMAND. You’re criminals. You don’t make demands. You get the hell out of my country, that’s what you do.
