LeMieux 'sympathetic' to Dream Act concerns but not supportive



Dream Act supporters who began an ad campaign in Florida this week to gain the support of Sen. George LeMieux are probably wasting their money.

LeMieux has adopted the "border first" approach that many Republicans have, including incoming Sen. Marco Rubio and Gov. Jeb Bush.

"While I am sympathetic to the students impacted by current law, I cannot support consideration of the Dream Act until we have taken substantial and effective measures to secure our borders," LeMieux said.
