US Senate to Vote on DREAM Act

The U.S. Senate is expected to vote Thursday on whether to consider legislation that would give young immigrants brought to the country illegally the chance to become citizens.

The House of Representatives approved the bill - known as the Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors, or the DREAM act - on Wednesday. The bill passed the House by a vote of 216 to 198. Observers, though, say it has little chance of passing in the Senate.

ARIZONA'S BORDER SHERIFFS NEED YOUR SUPPORT!

Arizona is a state that has seen an invasion of illegal immigrants continue unabated for years. Illegal immigration has taken its toll on Arizona in the form of billions of dollars spent on social services, education and prison costs.

Much more devastating, though, has been the human toll it has taken. Human and drug smuggling, kidnappings, drop houses and the murder of immigrants and American citizens are just some of the byproducts of our porous border.
