Durbin spokesman Max Gleischman said the Senator is "hopeful" that DREAM Act will be considered this year and is exploring ways to pass it as a stand-alone bill.

"The tide of public opinion has long been on the side of the DREAM Act – it has broad bipartisan support in Congress and poll after poll shows that people of all political persuasions believe in its goals," said Joe Shoemaker, press secretary for Sen. Durbin.

Meanwhile, Durbin and Lugar are still waiting for a response from the Obama administration on their April request for a moratorium on the deportation of DREAM Act eligible students while the legislation is pending.
