Republicans block youth immigration bill
WASHINGTON Senate Republicans on Saturday doomed an effort that would have given hundreds of thousands of young illegal immigrants a path to legal status if they enrolled in college or joined the military.
Sponsors of the Dream Act fell five votes short of the 60 they needed to break through largely GOP opposition and win its enactment before Republicans take over the House and narrow Democrats' majority in the Senate next month.

This headline and article was published by the AP. It EXPECTEDLY blames Republicans but is so brazen in its propaganda attempt that it is infuriating.
The vote was FIVE short. SIX Democrats did NOT vote to bring this to the floor. It would seem to me that DEMOCRATS blocked this. Of course that wouldn't look good to the AP party of choice - the Democrats. So they had to flip it completely around and turn it into propaganda by blaming Republicans.
Please don't delete this thread as its value is in the news of AP distortion rather than yet another article on the DREAM Act.
Mean mean Republicans. The article actually fails to stress the credit the DINO dissenters deserve for their part of stopping the Nightmare Act. Hopefully this is the high water mark of the nightmare.
I thought illegals could already join the military and get citizenship, can they not?
Most of the comments are against DREAM but there's few idiots trying to pretend the DREAM is still alive.
This is an important win for conservatives. The SCHEME Act would have further enabled chain migration: the legalized youngsters could then get legal status for their parents and other relatives, who could bring in their spouses and their spouses’ families. It never ends. You give an inch and they take a mile.
This is the most biased “reporting” I’ve seen in awhile. Something tells me an AP writer may be mad over the vote due to members of their family, or their own racism, and this article was their “revenge”.
It also omits discussion of the stealth provision that would have allowed obastard to grant blanket amnesty to all illegal aliens with the stroke of a pen...
There it is, they are admitting it was just a beginning to full amnesty.
DREAM = Dopers Resisting Everything AMerican!
The victors write the Fairness Doctrine. Elections have consequences.
An article obviously intended to DISCREDIT republicans will frankly make them MORE popular with actual Americans! You gotta love libs this far out of touch with the American people!
It ain’t over yet...1 version down - 3 more to go....
Reid has attached the Dream nightmare into another bill regarding Judicial movements.
Those poor 36 year old illegal “youths” won’t be able to get back door amnesty - at least until the 111th Congress tries to push another Shamnesty bill through.
The bill isn’t dead anyway.
As I understand it, foreign nationals, legal aliens, and legal residents can join, and then go on to apply for citizenship, but illegal aliens are barred from joining.
Obama is all puckered up, on his knees, fellating the Mexican government, the National Council of La Raza, and other immigrant advocates....all of whom are promising illegal votes to endangered Dems.
This outrage is burdening taxpayers and polluting our election system----b/c these criminals adopt multiple fraudulent identities. Keep in mind, all the evidence shows illegals establish several identities with phony SS nos and fake documents (which these "poor immigrants" buy from document brokers for several thousand dollars). Illegal parents get anchor babies SS nos. The SS nos are used to establish fake identities. Voye-crazy endangered Dems are pushing to get all those fake identities to vote.
It's becoming clearer and clearer, these Third World hyphenates are building a nation within our nation. THEIR nation does not recognize US sovereignity, our laws, customs, our Constitution, and our form of government. One of the racist hyphenates said they are planning to throw out "all those old white men in the US Congress." Americans consider that a declaration of war.
Desperate, vote-crazy Dems ignore the Nov 2 debacle at their peril. Remember when Ohaha exhorted illegals to "vote against the enemy." So how'd that work out for Dems (/snix)?
