the DREAM Act was defeated in the senate on saturday. the senators who voted NO think they were making a politically expedient move. what they dont realize is that they’ve f*kked up. the courageous young people who have come out about their status has galvanized a new youth movement that’s really only begun. they’ve turned out a new cadre of pissed off young activists. and im sure that after the sting of betrayal fades, a deeper even more forceful movement burgeons.
