Reid Speaks Out On DREAM Act

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Senate’s top Democrat says a House bill cracking down on employers who hire illegal immigrants could be an opportunity to also pass the DREAM Act. The act would give young illegal immigrants who go to college or serve in the military a chance at legal status.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid of Nevada said Wednesday if the House passes legislation requiring employers to use E-Verify, the Senate could attach the DREAM Act to that bill when it gets to the Senate.

Republicans want to require more employers to use E-Verify to make sure they hire people allowed to work in the U.S.

Reid says he would need to see the details of a House E-Verify bill, but Democrats “are not drawing any lines in the sand.”
