Objection to DREAM Act

Senator Durbin asked unanimous consent that the Judiciary Committee be discharged from further consideration of S.1615, the Dream Act of 2017, and that the Senate take up and pass the bill.
 
Senator Tillis asked that the request be modified so that the Senate resume consideration of H.R.2579, that the pending amendments be withdrawn with the exception of the Grassley amendment #1959 (“SECURE and SUCCEED Act”); that the Grassley amendment be agreed to; and the bill, as amended, be considered read a third time and passed.
 
Senator Durbin objected to the modification and Senator Tillis objected to the original request.
 
The Senate has resumed consideration of the motion to proceed to S.1519, the FY18 National Defense Authorization Act.
