Well, as expected, the Senate screwed this up, and the bigots are still able to get something out of this weekend vote in that body, as the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors (DREAM) Act died with a 55-41. This is pissing people off because as we said when the House passed this bill, "(N)o one except the xenophobes in this country feel that illegal immigration is so bad that a young person whose parents crossed the border when they were three, who was educated here, worked here, knows life no where else but here and would rather be nowhere else but here, should be sent back to a land they don't know when there are other options because a bunch of scumbags have a chip on their shoulder." We also said that conservatives always lose these immigration fights. In the history of anti-immigration campaigns that have gone on for generations, no one ever goes home and no one in this country ever regrets them not going home. The DREAM Act's defeat is a blow, but not a killing one. Those the DREAM Act would have helped will still find friends and they will have the protection they deserve. And the xenophobes will bw kept at bay. They always are.
