That didn’t take long: McCain all for considering Reid’s DREAM Act

Via Ace of Spades.

McCain promises he’ll help “resolve” their issues.  The DREAM Act, if you’re not familiar with it, would create a path to amnesty through the higher education.  Undocumented?  Get a degree in Hispanic Studies and you get your green card.  McCain likes that idea:

To his credit, he does acknowledge that 80% of Americans say “secure the border first.”  But in his own context, that’s just another little hurdle he sees along the way to Amnesty. What should shock me—but doesn’t—is that this comes only weeks after he vanquished J.D. Hayworth in the Arizona primary.

Geez, can he at least wait until he’s elected for another term as America’s Maverick RINO before jumping off on a DREAM vote?  Reid needs five more votes to invoke cloture.  If he gets them, it comes up for a vote.
