Faith Leader Says Fight Continues As Dream Act Fails
Supporters of immigration legislation known as the DREAM Act lost their battle this weekend, after the Senate blocked the bill. Senate Democrats fell five votes short of the 60 votes needed to advance the proposed law. The DREAM Act would have set a course toward legal residency for young undocumented immigrants, who were brought to this country illegally by their parents, if they met certain conditions such as graduating from high school and embarking on college or military service. Host Michel Martin speaks with one of the act's advocates, the Rev. Jim Wallis, who is founder and president of Christian group, Sojourners.
