Listen
AIR DATE: December 7, 2010

Congress is in its lame-duck session and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is looking to push the Dream Act through before Republicans take the House in January. The Dream Act allows minors who are undocumented a chance for citizenship if they finish two years of college or two years of military service. We talk to a couple of students who are hoping congress passes the bill. We also hear from local Republicans on their feelings of the Dream Act.

GUESTS
Anna Medrano
Hugo Calderon
Cory Adair, Exec Dir, Nevada Republican Party
John Hambrick, State Assemblyman, Dist 2

I am just curious as to why these students can't use the traditional immigration route. Could this process be started in school? Thank you
