Senator Tester Comes Around on Dreamers
Back in 2010, Senator Tester cast his most disappointing vote, refusing to side with the DREAMers (young people who had come to the United States with their parents who were undocumented immigrants), arguing at the time that ensuring their legal status in the U.S. would represent a dangerous step towards amnesty. Tester received an incredible amount of heat from the Left for his vote, a vote that was both politically and morally wrong. Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas famously called the Senator 'an asshole' and said he wouldn't work to his re-election while local progressives saw the vote as a decision to put politics ahead
