U.S. Representative Luis Gutierrez announced that the House will take up the DREAM Act next week.

The bill, which is an attempt to create a path to citizenship for undocumented immigrant students brought to the country as children, was hoped to have been pushed through and brought to a vote by today, but with no voting scheduled for today, it is being pushed to next week.

In a statement, Gutierrez said, “We are still on track to pass the DREAM Act in the House, but we ran out of time to have a vote this week, so it looks like we will have it next week. We have to follow certain rules in the House and do things in a certain order to call bills to the floor and we ran out of time for the DREAM Act this week.”
