Comment: Wither DREAM - There are three reasons for the bar to support DREAM: (1) it will pave the way for employment-based immigration bills in the next Congress, since Democratic votes will be necessary on both the House and Senate floors to pass these bills, this Democratic support may not materialize if DREAM dies; (2) a not-insignificant fraction of DREAM beneficiaries will need legal counsel, one of the few bright spots on the horizon for law firms suffering from the Great Recession; and (3) it is a matter of doing justice to half a million innocent young people.
The DREAM Act is now just one roll-call vote away from passage in the 111th Congress.
However, Congress remains deadlocked, and the time for action is fast-dwindling. DADT repeal, START, and judicial nominations all wait in the wings for very limited Senate floor time. While Majority Leader Reid has promised a vote on DREAM before the 111th adjourns, and we believe him, there is no sure path to passage visible at this time, and indeed prospects to secure the last 5 votes to invoke cloture are dim.
If DREAM passage is to be ensured, the sure-fire method is to attach it to a must-pass bill. Two such bills are currently in play and DREAM could conceivably be attached to either. The bills are of course, the tax cut bill and the Continuing Resolution for Appropriations for FY 2011. Such attachment, while it would guarantee success for DREAM, is a long-shot, since the politics of both the tax bill and the CR bill are complicated enough already. However, even serious discussion about attaching DREAM to the must-pass bills would go a long way to getting the 60 votes on the stand-alone bill.
We believe that this long-odds measure should at least be given a try since the possibility to secure significant immigration benefits has never been higher in the post-9/11 world. Killing the benefits bogeyman by enacting DREAM is a worthy goal, we urge our readers to take to their social media accounts and make their views known.
