The Senate passed the Trump Tax Scam last night at 2 am by a vote of 51-49. Senator Bob Corker was the only Republican who voted against it.
What now, you ask? National Indivisible posted this summary of next steps for the bill. Please read their post here.
Basically, the House vote could happen as soon as Monday. If it passes, the Congress will immediately move on to funding the government. This is important because the Dream Act is slated to be included in the funding bill.
So it appears we have excellent timing with Jonathan Ryan of the Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES) of San Antonio coming to our Monday evening meeting in Kerrville to speak on the Dream Act. Everyone is invited. It’s at 6 pm, Monday, Dec. 4 at Fuddruckers in Kerrville.
