DREAM Act: How Illinois Reps Voted
In somewhat of a surprise, the House of Representatives passed the DREAM Act last night by a vote of 216 to 198 but it's unlikely the bill will get through a Senate filibuster today.
As expected, all three African-American reps from Illinois, Danny Davis, Bobby Rush, and Jesse Jackson, voted to support the Dream Act. So did lakefront liberals Jan Schakowsky and Mike Quigley. All are Democrats.
