Nelson won’t support immigration act

Democratic Sen. Ben Nelson is siding with the Republicans, opposing legislation that would offer a path to citizenship for children of undocumented immigrants who enter college or military service. Nelson told Politico on Nov. 22 that he will not vote to pass the DREAM Act saying, "I’m not going to support any act that I don’t think adds to jobs, or military or to the economy." The Senate failed to pass the act, which has been around since 2001, earlier this year but Democrats are hoping to get the 60 votes needed to pass the bill during the lame duck session. Nelson, who was criticized by Nebraska conservatives for providing the crucial 60th vote on health care reform earlier this year, has said he is considering a reelection bid in 2012.
