    Reid moves forward on DREAM Act

    Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said he would file a motion Tuesday so the Senate could take up the DREAM Act, setting up a showdown over the immigration bill that would provide some young, undocumented immigrants a path to citizenship.

    Both House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Reid vowed earlier this month to hold votes on the standalone immigration bill during the lame-duck session. But Reid has been unable to hold together his 58-member caucus, and it’s uncertain if he’ll be able to get the 60 votes needed to overcome a GOP filibuster.

    Already, Democratic Sens. Ben Nelson of Nebraska and Mark Pryor of Arkansas said they will not vote for cloture on the bill. But Republican Sens. Dick Lugar of Indiana and Bob Bennett, who was defeated in his Utah primary race, have signaled they will vote for the DREAM Act.

    At this point, pro-immigration activists, Reid and other Democrats are courting a handful of other moderate Republicans, including Sens. George Lemieux (Fla.), Kay Bailey Hutchison (Texas) and Scott Brown (Mass.).

    Lemieux, who is retiring from the Senate, told POLITICO on Tuesday that Democrats couldn’t count on his vote until a deal is reached on extending Bush-era tax cuts and the border is secured.

    THIS CANNOT PASS THERE IS NO WAY THAT WE CAN LET THESE IDIOTS DO THIS TO THIS COUNTRY. THERE ARE MORE IMPORTANT THINGS THAT THEY NEED TO ATTEND TO WE HAVE MILLIONS OF AMERICANS OUT OF WORK, AND NOT TO MENTION THE HOMELESS AND HUNGRY IN THIS COUNTRY AND THE ONLY THING THEY ARE WORRIED ABOUT IS LEGALIZING A BUNCH OF ILLEGAL MEXICANS WHO SHOULDN'T BE HERE IN THE FIRST PLACE.
