From  Gov Track Click on Blue “sort” below for individual votes


Cloture vote on the Motion to Concur in the House Amendment to the Senate Amendment No. 3 to H.R. 5281

Purpose: Cloture votes are used in the Senate to end debate and move to a final up-or-down vote on the matter. The Senate cannot move forward until cloture is agreed to. Voting against cloture is essentially a filibuster. Because it takes 3/5ths of senators to achieve cloture, it is used as a tool by those against the matter to avoid the final simple-majority vote.

UPDATE:

This morning the news is reporting the vote for approval of the Dream act as 216 to 198, the  appropriations bill  appears to have an amendment. CNN orginally posted a news story that the appropriations bill included the Dream Act.

Here tis for Dream act: Gov Track

The the 216-198 vote,mostly on partisan lines, sends the so-called DREAM Act to the Senate, where it was uncertain if supporters had the votes to overcome a certain Republican filibuster against it.

The Development, Relief and Education for Alien Minors Act — or DREAM — would create a path to citizenship for immigrants who entered the United States illegally as children under the age of 16 and have lived in America for at least five years, obtained a high school or General Education Development diploma and demonstrated “good moral character,” according to a White House fact sheet CNN. Note they updated their page to reflect new vote total.
