According to an article on  “Senate Democrats surprised immigrant groups last week when lawmakers announced they would attach the pending legislation, first proposed in 2001, to a defense reauthorization bill already headed for a vote. A vote on the legislation, which could happen Tuesday, would clear the way for a floor debate in the Senate about it.”

This an interesting development as it could be a barometer for republicans will treat the immigration issue should they regain control of Congress.  Heavy opposition to immigrant rights has proven detrimental in general elections however anti-immgrationists are a vocal and persistent group.  For instance, calls to congressional offices opposing the DREAM Act outpace those in favor by a high margin.  If you support the DREAM Act, please call your senators.  The call takes less than a minute and all you have to say is “I support the DREAM Act”.
