DREAM drama

In theory, there will be a vote in the Senate on the DREAM Act during the lame duck session. I don’t have a whole lot of faith that the usual Republican intransigence can be overcome, but it’s well worth the effort and great to see the White House and Harry Reid work to keep their promises on this. In case you hadn’t heard, there’s been some drama here in Texas over this, as a number of students and other activists got themselves arrested outside Kay Bailey Hutchison’s office while waiting for a chance to speak to her about it. They’ve since been released, and it’s unclear why they were arrested in the first place. You know how that can go. Anyway, NewsTaco and Dos Centavos have been following this, so check in with them to keep up with what’s going on. And even though she’s pledged to vote against the DREAM Act in a pathetic and ultimately futile attempt to keep from being teabagged out of her seat in 2012, give a call to Sen. Hutchison’s office at 866-996-5161 to tell her that you support the DREAM Act and she should, too.

    I tried to call her office several times yesterday, and each time, it went straight to a recording asking to call back at a later time. I tried again this morning, and same thing. Finally, at lunch, I got through to a young woman who recorded my name and zip code. I don’t know if it mattered or not, but I told her I was a ninth generation Texan.
