HARRY REID 'In Your Face' With Four Versions of Dream Act

Foxnews has an article that Harry Reid will Get his Dream Amnesty Bill passed or die trying…. We all know why this bill is so important to Democrats; Millions of new hispanicsin this country who will  become gratful Democartic Party voters.. But you have to wonder why Harry Reid is so completely crazed with this one issue. Reid now has put out there FOUR versions of the Dream Act without and hearings. Reid is out of control and should go home.Harry Reid is a perfect example with how far out of touch the Dems are with the wishes of the American people. The U.S. has immigration laws and the public wants these laws followed PERIOD. SHAW

four different versions of the controversial immigration bill known as the DREAM Act without a hearing on any of them, drawing outrage from the top Republican on the committee that would have handled the package. 

The Nevada senator, who narrowly escaped a defeat in the November election, has pursued an unusual approach to advancing the bill that gives young illegal immigrants who attend college or join the military a pathway to legal status. 

Since September, his deputy Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., has introduced four slightly different versions all bearing the same name. Reid has moved them all to the calendar — he appears to be teeing up for a test vote, which could happen sometime later this week, on the latest version introduced on Tuesday. 

But Republicans balked at the maneuvering. Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, railed against the bill and the process Democrats were using to push it. 

“We now may have a fourth version of the DREAM Act,” Sessions said Wednesday. “We haven’t had a hearing on that in seven years.” 

He decried the bill as “amnesty” and pledged to fight it “with every strength and every ability that I have.” 

A statement to FoxNews.com put out by the Republican side of the Senate Judiciary Committee said all four versions have the same “fundamental” problems, but that Democrats’ approach causes unnecessary confusion. 

“Democrat leaders, in their rush to pass an unpopular bill during the lame-duck session, have completely bypassed the Judiciary Committee. They have introduced four separate versions of the same bill and, without any committee review, placed each and every one of them on the legislative calendar,” the statement said. “This unusual approach creates a chaotic situation, one that makes it more difficult for the public and their representatives — as well as the press — to review this deeply controversial measure.”
