Vote Description

Immigration Policy Revisions (DREAM Act). HR 5281 (Roll Call 278)



On December 18, 2010, the Senate defeated an attempt to stop debate and pass a bill granting children of illegal immigrants legal status if they have been in the United States continuously for more than five years and were younger than 16 when they entered the country, acquired a GED or enlisted in the military, and were younger than 30 on the date of enactment. ACU opposes this kind of piecemeal amnesty for those in the country illegally, and while a 55-41 majority of the Senate did vote to put this measure to a vote, under Senate rules 60 votes are required to limit debate.
