DREAM Act Shattered in Senate

The US senate has blocked a measure that offered legal status to individuals, who entered America illegally as children if they enroll in college or join the military.

Sponsors of the Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act, known as the DREAM Act, fell short of the 60 votes to move the act forward.

If passed the act would have allowed immigrants, who were under the age of 30 and arrived in the country before the age of 16 to apply for conditional US status if they had obtained a high school diploma or a GED.'
