Pryor Helps Stop So-Called "Dream Act' (Amnesty)

Showing that he has a stronger sense of political self-preservation than outgoing Senator Blanche Lincoln, Arkansas Senator Mark Pryor today was one of six Democrats to join with a majority of Republican senators in stopping the so-called "Dream Act" from coming up for a vote in the lame-duck senate. After their repudiation by the electorate in November, the Democratic leadership is attempting to cram through as many controversial proposals as possible before they are replaced in January.

The Dream act would have provided a pathway to citizenship (besides waiting in line like legal immigrants have to do) for illegal aliens under 30 who claimed that they entered the country under the age of 16. Of course, that would allow a whole new wave of "chain migration" as they could begin leveraging their citizenship to bring in other family members.
